Just got my hi-capacity RRS B II pro II monopod head and thought I would give it a try with the 400 VR and no sooner was I out on the back porch
this little gem landed in a tree about 50 yds out. I believe it is a juvy Redtail:confused: I am a happy camper with this new toy... I mean equipment:biggrin:

Isn't it sweet when we get shots like this in our backyard! Way to go Tim. Sounds like you are happy with your new gear (toy:biggrin:).

As far as I.D.'ing this bird...I am thinking its a 1st year Juvy Broad Winged Hawk, but I am by no means an expert in this field.

And bingo was his namo!

Glad you had nice subject to break in that new RRS monopod head.

I might have to buy one too. (just to make the bird visit my yard!) Ha!

Well done,

Wade
