Very nice! The duck looks a bit cold on the ice waiting for spring. The TC seems to be working nicely for you..

Nice set! Well done. Your hawk is probably a Coopers but definitely not a red tail. Look forward to seeing more of your photos.

Definitely not a red-tail, I think it's a sharp-shinned. There is a site you might want to check out on how to tell the difference between a "sharpie" and a cooper's but I'll quote the most pertinent part here because your photo shows it so well:
"Tip of long tail is typically square, showing prominent corners. The outer tail feathers are usually the longest (or nearly so)."

Here's the link to the site:

Great shots!

Thanks for the link, Sarah!
I was actually reading up on hawks last night and came across a similar article.
I'm going to do a bit more reading and just put "Hawk" in my smugmug caption for this image. :)
