Default Hawk - FZ35

Have been trying to get a shot of a Hawk for several weeks now but can never get close enough to get a decent shot. These birds see you coming and fly. Sunday I got close enough to get a shot but still not close enough to get a good shot. Now if I can just get closer and get him to turn around.

I think this is a Red-shouldered Hawk.

Wow jj, this is a wonderful shot! I'd say you are plenty close enough! Nice job.

JJ,

impressive shot.
I guess without a teleconverter, EZ or cropping?
In which distance was the hawk?

Cheers,

Stefan

I think the rear end shot shows off its pretty feathers. Well done.

Default Great shot

JJ
I've been trying to get a shot of red-tails who frequent a tree not far from my house. No luck yet: they see you and they're off. If I do get a shot, I hope it's nearly as good as yours.

This shot looks pretty good to me jj. I think your bird is an adult Cooper's Hawk.

Very nice photo JJDog!! I agree with Happy Peasant that it's an adult Cooper's Hawk.
