EDIT-UPDATE 03/29/2007: Well, nothing like getting ID help and attaching it in the wrong place. I think I've got them right this time .....

-------------------

A few hours of SUN on Monday Morning :biggrin: :biggrin:

So I decided to go watch some Eagles fly and show up late to work. Saw the Eagles, none flying, but did get up close and personal with a couple of perching Hawks, actually 3 different birds, thanks for some ID help from another site. So, along with everything else, my very first Merlin!!!!

Got lucky, Louie, lets hope we get a few more "sunbreaks" soon.

Great stuff seems liek the PNW weather has alsow spread to New Jersey..... great shots of the Hawk
Thanks, Mike. Have I told anyone how sick and tired I am of our weather so far this year????????? :mad: :mad: :mad:

Going to work on time or going to photograph hawks hum. Tough decision...NOT!:biggrin: Great shots
Yeah, it sure was a tough one! Thanks.

I had an ID Correction from another site, and have ammended the first post. Not only are these the first decent images I have gotten of a Rough-legged Hawk, but my first ever sighting of a Merlin!!!! Problem was, I kept looking for a pointy hat with stars ....... :wink:

Had a neighbor who wore shorts year-round. Guy was NUTS! And yes, the Moss and Mold do get to us sometimes, along with the webbed feet.

Got some more sun Yesterday, some more birdies to show, and off to find some Sandhills over the weekend to the East. Things are looking up, if the weather guys got it right this time ......
