    I went back to Hoover Res. In Ohio to try to get better pics of the Baby Hawks. I got those and several others. Still getting used to the D300 BTW.

    I love Great Blue Herons (GBH), egrets, and other herons for some reason, Here is a pic of one of the GBH's at Hoover area N Monday:

    I was 15 feet from this Hawk...It was more interested in prey than me. Close to full frame here: :biggrin::

    Thanks Russ. I'm starting to get used to it :biggrin:.

    The Hoover res. is a pretty cool place to see a lot of wildlife. Right now the water is too high, but where I was in area M, there are shorebirds that migrate through there. One of the naturalists has close to 100 warbler boxes for protonotary warblers scattered throughout the preserve. He told me that the best time to be there is late April through May, and durring the fall migration.
