Ok, first off I am a very bad bird person....had to edit the title of this posting. The little guy in the second shot is a Kestrel I believe...not a peregrin as I initially marked....yes, I am a bird idiot! LOL!
keirin...yes it is a screech owl, but precisely what kind I cannot say. I really need a little pocket guide book for when I'm out shooting these little guys.
Rory...Thank you! I agree that the third shot is my absolute favorite and probably really the only "keeper" from that day IMO (or at least "pritner" from that day). Should I just have the grey background blended over the OOF building in the background??? It doesn't really bother me honestly but I could give it a shot and see how it turns out.
