Red Tail Hawks

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Sep 11, 2008.

  1. Yesterday morning I was late to the office, made a trip up through some of the favorite places to find hawks and eagles, Skagit Flats.
    Didn't see any eagles but did get a few shots of some Red Tails. All shot with D300, 500mm with a TC1.4.

    This first shot is of some type of sparrow.
    original.

    Excellent series, Louie! The first one looks like a female House Finch. I love number 3 and 4. The last one is not showing.
