I am still unable to identify the different hawks I encounter. This hawk has been flying around my backyard since spring, I believe he might be a juvenile Cooper Hawk..but I could be completely wrong. He loves to scree-scree all morning as the sun comes up and flies around the canyon near my house. He routinely has sky battles with the crows. These photos were taken on a misty, cloudy and drizzly morning. He was bathing himself in the drizzle in a tree in my backyard. The photos were difficult, the backlight was really bright compared to the shadows of the tree branches. He was about 40'-50' up the hill and I used a 300mm lens to photograph him, the photos are slightly cropped.
Nice photos. The last one with the tail is great.ReplyDelete
