p.1 #1 · Crane Hawk and GHO


Lucky to find this hawk amongst the foliage in Brazil. It was very dark and then back lit so excuse the quality. But since this is a rarely seen raptor I thought you'd give me a bit of slack. To give you an idea how neat this spot was....there was a Great Horned Owl within 20 yards of this guy.

Morris, Roberta, Ron, Karl, Ken, Tam, Kenny....thanks so much for chiming in. I was super excited to see this hawk and we found it in its perfect habitat. That is to say in a dark forested area. These guys root around for lizards, small birds, and insects all with double jointed legs designed for getting into holes and crevices in the trees.
Glad you liked the shots.

Hey look, shots with the 200-400 that aren't taken at 400 or 560!!!!

Oh yeah, great work capturing this jungle bird whilst he was hidden in the jungle. Nothing easy about shots like this. I do think this is the first of his kind I have seen on the forum, super congrats on that

No slack needs to be cut, Eric.
These are excellent images.
I especially like #3- even with the harshness on the right. The hawk and its pose are perfect.

Ted, Tim, Brian, David, Chris, Phoo and Charlie....thanks so much for stopping by and the nice words. This was one of those times to be happy just to see such a unique bird...I would have loved the "perfect" shot but the situation didn't allow it. These are the times when the wildlife observer rather than photographer part of me got very excited.
