    This is my first picture to post on Nikon Cafe, would love to know what this beauty is. I thought it might be a Falcon but just wasn't sure.

    Thank you very much

    Thank you

    Just saw him by chance on a powerline in Larue Tx. Wish I had my 300mm on my D300 that day. Just had my 18-200mm walk around on it though.

    Thank you for the replies!
