    More nice shots Gale. I hope that my Hawk shots come out as good as yours. I promise that I'll get some shots up today. The 1,500 mile drive last weekend whipped my butt pretty good. :rolleyes:

    Hi Ken :>))))))

    Gee sure good seeing you get one here just a bit more each day. I am so happy and good to hear your feeling a bit better each day as well. That is wonderful.

    That Hawk has a long story of getting him. Wow Frank and I followed him through places I sure wasn't very comfortable going. Ol' Frank just kept trudging after him and I followed. LOLOL All he had was that tiny turtle (posted earlier)... Fun though :>)))

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Hi there Mr. Monty Dog :>))))))

    They were very proud parents. I think they liked us owww and ahhhh over the babies :>)))))
    They watched us the whole time though :>)))

    The Momma with tiny ones wasn't so keen on Trish and I though. She was heading them in the other direction.

    Now that Hawk. Oh geeezzz what an experience that was. lolol..

    I hope Frank got some better ones of him.
    Really tough shoot on him.

    Well you will just have to come here for a vacation...Take a few weeks and we will keep you busy with all the birdies you want. :>))
    Would be great to see you.

    Me thinks you would be fun to shoot with.

    Dear Frank,

    Yes that was one hectic week you put in for sure...WOW

    Hope your Hawk tured out super. Mine aren't as good as I would like, but the experience of getting him I will never forget, and that you can't put in pictures for sure.

    Hope you have rested up......

    Very nice shots Gale. Boy, you guys got some wierd ducks down there :rolleyes: I finally did a Google for their sounds, as their "Whistling" name had me very curious, and man, oh man, it's not your typical quack quack is it? :tongue:
