You must have a big head, or the bird was low!

But it’s a great photo either way.

 I live with a tiny bird, and every day I am further in awe of the avian world, I hope this experience helped  to show you that birds are the rightful inheritors of the modern world :-)

+1 from me.  Great shot.

Given that beak and no doubt his/her talons, I am glad that it did fly over your head. 

Interestingly, birds are also direct descendants of the dinosaurs - so past and future maybe?

Unbelievable closeup of EIF (eagle in flight)!
