The Eagles are here for the winter.
Still can't wrap my head around the fact that we're nine miles from the GWB.

ps The hawk was taken by a friend who never touched a big lens in his life.
It was my camera( Mark IV & 500 f/4)
Not Bad for a novice.

Sorry, Al but the hawk is my favorite...

You should never let a friend shoot with your gear lest they show you up ! ....

I agree Chris. The first two are actually a little fuzzy, while the hawk is crystal clear. The light at the Reservoir was reall bad, I was lucky to get theses two.

Thanks for the honest critique.

I saw an eagle over the Hudson at 58th St yesterday. I like the hawk best as well

Thanks guys. I still could have done better. Sometimes I post pictures to let some of my forum friends such as Eric
and Chris B, know that it's time to plan a trip.
