Bird of prey ID

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Beezle, May 29, 2005.

  1. Can anyone ID this bird? San Jose, CA. I wandered out back with my D2X and looked up and saw this hovering.

    Unfortunately I had the 85mm mounted and it was not that close. This is a full res crop.

  2. Hi Beezle, most definitely a Red-tailed Hawk. See the red tail? ;-)
  3. Aha! Thanks for responding.

    I will have to wander up the hill and try to grab some images of the many raptors that I can see lingering up there.

    I think I will go buy a field book first. :)
