  1. This Hawk was recorded during mid-golden hour. I thought the Red Tail's silhouette as it flew away was interesting and beautiful as captured with the slow shutter speed (1/30s). Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at ~1000 mm focal length. Taken on 28 Jan after sunset.
  2. After eating a ground squirrel, the neighborhood hawk cleaned its beak with the equivalent of dental floss. Yet another bird behavior I haven't seen before! Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at 1000mm and 1600mm from about 100 feet. see:
  3. After missing a passing insect, it ruffles its feathers then regurgitates some food (left over Chock Cherry pit and insect). Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at a distance of 150 feet on a hot August afternoon near Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  4. Using my Nikon Coolpix P950 at 1000mm and 2000mm focal lengths, I captured a young Meadow Lark preening and singing. I slowed down the bird's song by 50% in the last part of this clip.
  5. These European Collared Doves have become a fixture around my house this year as my trees are starting to provide shelter and a good nesting location for these shy birds. Focal Length (35mm format) - 1600 mm For more videos, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OUZEfCjIiI

  7. This bird has been a regular during the past month. It seems to know when I am photographing it. I produced a short video clip of it, worth a peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfvxkepe20c&list=PLFOag6HjHS4cuI3TU_ZQZrX4xXlZvtM9e&index=2
  8. These birds of prey were taking time out to preen themselves while winds ruffled their feathers. It was difficult to catch them facing me but I managed this by taking a frame from my video below. Not certain if they were a mating pair or mother-juvenile pair. The one on the left looks to be the same as the one here last year. Taken at 2000mm focal length with a Nikon P950 on 4 May near Cheyenne, Wyoming. A video of this can be viewed at: .
  9. These shy birds are difficult to photograph but I got lucky. They were about 60 feet away. Nikon P950 Focal Length (35mm format) - 1100 mm.
  10. Can anyone confirm my suspicions that this is a Swainson's Hawk? Taken today (4/22) 6 miles northeast of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  11. Tony: No field guide but I use Audubon, Merlin Bird ID, and Raptor ID apps.
  12. Thanks Charlie. I'm seeing their migration/nesting range now. Very cool!!!
  13. Wow. Thanks Kevin and Hasan. Thought they are restricted to Florida?
