Very nice series Herb, looks like you'll have a season to enjoy.

Hey Rob, That's great news for me as last year the marsh was flooded and little raptor presence was noted.

Herb,
The Peanut Gallery thinks these are swell pictures .
And a belated but heartfelt thanks to you and the other fine-feathered fellow fotographers who take such amazing BIFs. Youse guys take such terrific bird images that I can not only enjoy seeing them on the Bird Forum, but I don't have to bother taking crappy BIFs- which are a waste of time for me and the birds that are doing their best to help me out.
As we say in Oregon- "Muchas grass."
Charlie


Thanks Charlie

Fantastic photo's as usual Herb!

I did have a technique question on the hawks. Are using a blind? Shoot from car? Stand? How are you getting close enough to get good hunting shots?

I do OK with owls and eagles, but struggle to get good proximity to hunting hawks.

Any tips?

hey herb

these are great. i especially like the second shot with the bird cruising by at eye level. he also has a cool lighting effect on him with the white edges to his whole body. very cool....

Last shot Herb, double catchlight is mighty fine sir! If I am lucky in a few outings I might get 'one' look and shot at a fleeting RTH, this must be a hot spot for you, you're killing me here buddy Lost of great looks, this must be fun!
