  2. Beautiful pictures Harry, you have done a nice job of capturing them. The short tail on the hawk makes me think it is a Sharp Shinned. Keep posting your beautiful work.
     
  3. Harry,

    Really nice shots, looking forward to meeting all of you in 10 days!

  4. Whoa - I'm sick with envy. All we have up here is rain rain rain right now.

    Great shots. Keep'm comming.
     
  5. Harry I'm so envious that I can't come down there! On the other hand...I'll be in Puerto Rico during that week, so I won't be suffering too much ;-)

    That third shot of the hawk looks like a Red-shouldered. Tail not long enough for Sharp-shinned, and beak and head shape wrong. Red-shouldered are probably the most common hawks you find in most of Florida.
