    thanks all for the look

    I have no pro long glass, the hunt is kinda the thrill
    I love watching these guys,amazing birds
    getting a few decent shots is icing on the cake
    I know Nat. Geo. isn't coming knocking for my pictures

    Warren, I've got a few shots in the rain, taken with my 18-70
    got to about 10-15 feet away !

    thanks Anthony
    thanks Jim

    I think we have them "around", but the ospreys take over in the summer, and the redtails come back in force in the fall through winter

    hopefully the GHO family will resurface soon as well
