    I agree with all above. Excellent shots Rory. :wink:
  6. Excellent shots so how far of the beaten trail is this nest, love the mature shot it is stunning
  7. I have been helicopter dropped on a ridge. It is about a 45 minute hike down to the nest site. It is another 2 hours to hike down to a logging road.

    We have a small support helicopter for the helicopter harvesting we do that I have been able to catch a ride on.

    The mature shot is a result of the female taking a dim view to my presence and dive bombing me. this is the first time she has done this, no doubt to protect the fledglings, even though I was over 100 feet away. Unfortunately it was dark and I under exposed that one by a stop.
  8. Rory I will take your "not great shots" any day. This is a bird I would never have seen if you had not posted it. Thanks.
