    Couple BIF

    The light got a little harsh on me but I had a good time. Here is an immature Bald Eagle and a couple shots of a Redtail Hawk, on where he is being chased down by a crow. They really like to pester the birds of prey. They were a ways off and the quality suffers from it but I couldn't pass it up. =}

    Still look good for a heavy crop. You guy's are killing me with all the different species you get to shoot.

    Thank you, Jack and Steve. Steve, you must have at least a few birds around, or are you just to far out from a good spot?

    Nice pics. I wonder what age this Juvenile bald eagle is? I have shot several and they always seem to be in different stages of development.

    Paul, #1 for me. The detail in the wings is brilliant. How much did you crop because that looks great to me, must be the Sony magic working for you

    At this point I'd be thrilled just to see an eagle much less get a shot like this. I'm glad you shared #3. I enjoy seeing the antics of the crow.

    Thanks, Monte. I also wonder about their age. Being it can take between 5-8 years to get full white. Seems like a big gap there.

    Thank you, Greg. #1 wa not much of a crop. 2 was a bit of a crop and three was a rather large crop, that I would have normally passed on but it was fun to see the crow on the Hawk. I got another where the crow was actually on the hawks back, making full contact but you can only see a small bit of the crow.

    Thanks, Terri. Keep looking, their #s are increasing every year.
