    I should see this Hawk many times during winter. It set up its winter hunting range along the road I take, while going shopping.

    This is the usual view we get here of this common roadside raptor, but they're quite wary, and usually fly as soon as a camer lens is pointed in their direction.

    We went to Hawk Cliff road again, but no luck. Coming back I stopped at my favorite spot, Valley Inn Road, Marsh and Ponds. This Hawk flew in when we no longer saw the sun, but the top of the tree was still lit up. I was way too far for any better details.

    Well this beauty tollerated me for quite a while and I was able to get of a boat load of shots. The shaded pine trees in the background did`nt show up at all . And made out for a nice formal portrait look to the shot.

    A little soft on focus, unfortunately. I was shooting vertically above my head and couldn't keep it perfectly steady. Thought it was a nice shot anyway.

    Backlighting isn't always a bad thing. This juvenile red-tail is showing off his feather arrangement quite nicely, I thought.

    On mount Pinos there is never ending oportunities for shooting raptors. It is a place (especially the area known as 'Bitter Creek Observation Point) where falcons, hawks Eagles and condors can be seen in a very short period of time. A day trip, with a little luck, can net several images. A...

    Red-tailed Hawk - Perched

    I was walking in a parking lot while shooting some real estate when I saw this little guy eating at the side of the road. I only had a 15-30mm and a 35-105mm with me but he let me get pretty close. Then, he took off and perched in a nearby tree and proceeded to screech (sing). I have never been...

    This ol' boy flew up on a lightpost and allowed me an amazing 26 minute photo session. Of course, he waited until I turned my back before flying away--pretty independent!

    A nice pair of adult Red-tailed Hawks. I've been told they have been nesting in this same tree for the last 3 or 4 years. 2 of 3 nestlings appear to have made it this year. I saw one coming in right before I got this shot.
