p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A visit to the ponds, Volume 1


I finally made it back to the pond for my first outing in five years - yikes. Some of you might remember me from my hummingbird series two years ago, but unfortunately I haven't had much time at all to shoot wildlife, or much anything else for that matter. Before we get to the pond though, I have some from just around the corner from my house

The first are from an outing on Saturday to Lake Roland (Pond #1), which is 5 minutes from my house. I happened upon this red shouldered hawk (thanks for the ID) shortly after arriving, and it indulged me by posing for a few shots from about 30' away. The eagle, on the other hand, was in a tree on the other side of the lake, eating a squirrel or rabbit.

It's great to see you back no matter what you are posting

Nice finds Gero, hope you continue to get out and share what you find!
Pretty cool how the Coopers tucks that extra foot up and hides it.

That's excellent work after so long away, well done. Nice to stumble on these birds in your first outing. We should all be so lucky!

BTW- I think your Cooper's Hawk is a Red-Shouldered Hawk.

Nice set Gero. I agree that it looks like a red shouldered hawk.

Thanks for the comments, and having done some more searching, i will take the correction that it is a red shouldered hawk. Even after all these years of taking pictures, I still sometimes have trouble telling the different species apart. Appreciate your insights and experience.

Guess I just need to get out (way) more
