We have had a very large 10-15' wing span fly low over our neighborhood. It is a raptor because of the feathers on the edges of the wing. It is totally black underneath and it has an orange beak. I live in Vacaville Ca, half way between Sacramento & San Fransico. I have searched for the bird in books & on line. We know the wing span because it flew over the sidewalk & we could count the number of sections it's wings covered. I saw it the other day , this is the third sighting. The farm land starts about 1/2 to 1 mile from my house. This is the biggest bird I have ever seen.& I have lived in Iceland & around the USA. Thank you for your help.
