The raptor migration is in full swing in southern Arizona with species like Swainson's Hawks coming and going and Red Tailed Hawks arriving from points north to augment our local population.  Yesterday a friend and I went on a hawk hunting expedition, driving rural roads looking for hawks. We found many of them.  Here's one -- a juvenile Red Tailed Hawk in flight.  Shot with a 5Diii, 400 DO, "M" setting, ISO 400, f7.1 @ 1/1600.

These Marabou Stork are not pretty, but strangely photogenic I think.

Trying out a used Nikon 200-400 I bought last week.  This is a 100% crop or close to it.  I bought a used Nikon D300s just so I could play with it.  It seems a bit noisy, and there is a fair amount of sharpening.  He was in the shadows, so I ended pulling exposure up a stop plus a lot more boost to shadow areas which likely accounts for the noise.

I had been looking for an owl for a long time. I could hear them all the time in and around my house but could never see them. I took this photo handheld @1/40s at almost nightfall, raised the exposure in lightroom. Not one of my best but yet another bird I can cross off my list!

i have a lot of great horned owls around my house. i see them in the daytime midwinter sometimes but the rest of the year i only see them at, or after dark, i have been trying to get a decent shot of one myself for a few weeks but no luck? they are like cops, never around when you need them?

nice pics,
