Was looking for hawks and was pleasantly surprized.

Nice shot, I only have some not so great shots of Pileated Woodpeckers.

Great capture. I'm looking forward to the day I get photograph one of these guys.

That is a very special trophy you have there...Well photographed too I might add!
Never been able to get near one with a camera in hand...Seen several as close as three feet away but no camera. Do they have anti-camera sniffers built in?

Thanks for the nice comments. I have been trying for years to capture this bird. Many times I have seen them, ran to get my cam, only to watch him fly away not to be seen again for many months.

Nice shot and good timing. I know exactly what you mean. I've only ever seen one of tthese twice in the last 3 or 4 years. They're very shy around here. Great stuff!...cheers..Don

It's a wonderful shot, and like so many others here, I have never been able to photograph one with anything like a reasonable shot. For the last couple of months, there has been one in the woods near my house....but only once has he come even a little close. I won't post my poor effort, which was barely good enough to identify him he was so far away.
