Hello!

I love those awesome birds!

Here are two pics of a little falcon that lives on the park in front of my house.

180º neck?

Eating some insect

I took these pics with ISO 200, 1/640 shutter speed for the first and 1/800 another. Lens full zoomed in, 504mm. :D

Not lucky enough to have seen eagles around these parts...but falcons, hawks, and ospreys are somewhat common. Here's a few I've seen and shot around South Florida:

Probably a juvenile red-shouldered hawk:

My one and only distant sighting of a northern harrier:
Image

A kestrel eating a dragonfly:

Red shouldered hawk on guard in a tree:

Osprey landing:

Got this young eagle today.
It kept hiding behind that branch and when I finally got where it couldn't anymore...off it went. :roll:
