I am not sure you can call this guy truly wild or even a predator, more like a picnic park beggar.

Managed to call my first Coyote.
Spotted it quite a ways up the side of the mntn (realitively small mntn mind you) and blew a rabbit distress call and brought it down a way but from it's vantage above me must have spotted me and decided it was close enough and I wasn't a rabbit screeching...lol
After a bit of sitting it tried to belly crawl under the electric fence and judging by the actions it got a wake up call.
It was quite wet then which may have aided that along some.

finally got caught up at work and getting back out for pics.. went out for some migration shots and wouldnt you know it... sited my first bald eagle ever close to where I live. They are rare most of the time but in the fall a few tend to follow the river south on thier migration. Here is a series.. seen him first in the distance and spooked him as I approached (first shot). I settled in for about 30 minutes and he returned to his perch. After a few shots he took off and I caught it but was surprised when he went into an attack dive. Wouldn t you know it.. the rabbit he was after was behind a small group of trees so I never caught the hit but still a cool series for me ending with the controlled dive....

so a farmer friend of mine calls me and tells me a redtail hawk has been eyeing up his chickens the last few days. He invited me out to try and catch some pics of it but as with every hawk, especially at this time of year, they are extremely spooky. Got a lot of ordinary shots with his barn in it but they didnt appeal to me. Decided to set up a tripod focused on his normal perch, hid it in branches and hay and then use a remote trigger.. Only got one shot which was workable but I'm really happy with it for a wild closeup shot. The minute it heard the shutter go off only about 3 meters from it it was gone like a shot.

going out with a retired conservation officer tomorrow to try and track down an endangered species... the burrowing owl. Hopefully we find the little guy. Got a new setup I wanna try with them as their attention span = zero. You can spook em and they will take off into the burrow but they are curious enough to be back out within a few minutes. Pretty easy to photograph them with some kind of triggered tripod setup IF you can find em.

Burrowing Owl from today.... cheated a bit as we went to a den being watched by the wildlife department so took all the guess work out of trying to find one. Its funny... its burrow was only about 2 meters off the side of a well travelled farm road...

Seen this guy sitting on the side of the road and quickly realised it had a broken wing.... scooted it away from the side of the road so it was safe and called local wildlife dept.... didnt want to get too close while I was waiting for them to come but managed these 2 shots in which it looks normal still and you cant see the broken wing... the officer said it had been shot :evil: gonna leave it at that before I say something rude... it should survive though...
