Canon7D with f/2.8 300mm II + 2xTC, iso 400, 1/320 - 1/500 f/5.6These are at the limits of resolution as the kingfisher was quite far away. I was hand holding the light combo with the 300mm + 2xTC. The kingfisher hovered with head dead still, dived and came up with his catch.

I shot this in northern New Jersey. Can anyone ID it?edit: had trouble with the insert tool the first few timesIs that a pigeon it's feasting on? That would help to size it. It's definitely a falcon, but I'm not sure it is quite big enough for a peregrine, plus I'm not familiar with North American distribution. The hood doesn't look as distinct as normal, but it could be a juvenile bird or it could be the angle.
