Wonderful shots, Linda. I'm jealous of that red-tail shot. Great work.

Thank you for the comments! The Red-tailed Hawk photo will always be a favorite for me as that bird was not afraid of me at all! Usually red-tails take off the minute I pull the car over before I even get the camera in my hands. This one, however, was not afraid of me and my Husband at all. This Hawk not only let us step out of the car to photograph him but he let us set up the tripod too!!!! A very unique opportunity. He did swoop down to get a mouse once we got in back in our car and so we were able to watch how he used his wings to trap the mouse and learned alot by observing. I got some photos of him down in the weeds with his wings extended over the mouse and I will always treasure those photos too.

Buzzsaw - the Kestrel was photographed at the Mpls St. Paul Airport during an unsuccessful attempt to locate one of the Snowy Owls being reported there. However, I assume you are asking about the Red-tailed Hawk. Hewas photographed across the river from Old Frontenac, MNnear Maiden Rock on the Wisconsin side. ALOT of Eagles over there too (more than on the Minnesota side!).

I really like the Cardinal pic. Nice dark BG behind the well lit bird.
