This MAGNIFICENT Red Tail Hawk, whick lives in my backyard, is EXACTLY why I HAVE to invest in some better lenses! This is the best I could get with my existing setup.

What lens did you use? That is nice he lives in your backyard. In years past we've had woodpeckers, but this year I have yet to hear one. I had hoped to be able to use my Tamron 70-300 to get it this year.

Do you have a tripod? That might help. I pulled mine out this past weekend after seeing the success Harriet's been having with hers.

I have an older, smc Pentax F 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6. I was using my monopod, which worked OK for the in-flight shots. You're probably right about the tripod, at least for the shots when she (I think it's a female) is perched.
