  2. Never had a doubt about there being more birds, that's why I want to come back. Terrific shots Harry. The Red Shouldered Hawk is very special, beautiful job!. I can't quite make out what the Tricolor has in its beak.

    Always a pleasure to have you in our backyard Louie. I had a hard time too making out what it caught but I think it was a small fish. The hawk too off so suddenly I was sure I had misse dthe shot. I was a happy camper when I reviwed the shot on my PC> :biggrin:

    They all look great Harry. I especially like the hawk. I was also wondering what the tricolor had in its mouth.

    Hey Harry -

    Great series. My favorite image is the shoveler with the gorgeous colors and mirror-smooth reflection. The most intriguing are the grackle chasing the egret. Presumably the grackle had a water-side nest and the egret came looking for lunch? I can't think of any other reason for this behaviour, but how stupid can a grackle be to build a nest at water's edge?

    Thanks Gordon. The grackles have nest in the dead palm trees in that area so that's probably why she was so hostile.
     
  20. I knew you still had birds around! Good work!
