Went back to the Rio Bosque Wetlands in El Paso TX to use my Tamron 70-300 some more. It is a handy lens for the price but I see the results of some reviews I read, when you take it out to 300mm it's price starts to rear it's head, these aren't the best...

I'm not a fan of shooting birds but it is fun to get out and stretch my legs. I need to get a Birds of the Southwest guide book

I don't know what this raptor is, may be a juvenile Harris Hawk, not sure though

One down, the crane-like bird is a Black Necked Stilt
