I don't do Birds In Flight because a): my lenses aren't long enough, and b): I can't focus on the damn things anyway.
Thought I'd post this of a Lapwing as I haven't seen any of these ground nesting birds on CR yet. They mob any creatures that approach the nest, and you can see this one is giving me the eye.

5D mkii, 300 f4 L @ f9

Nice birdie, Sporgon! I didn't even recognise it at first. I'm used to see them a lot on the ground or showing off the wings in a different way.

Thank you, Dylan777.
Hope you get great results with the 1.4X/400 combination.
I am really dejected that I can't handle the 200-400/X1.4, really too heavy for me to wield.
Your combination is hopefully more usable.

At last I got a chance to do some serious BIFs.
Shot with 5D3, rented 200-400 f/4 Canon.

Good shots lion rock.

I got 1.4TC III on order. Can't wait to put it on my 400mm

Beautiful shot Jon.  I believe it is a Rough-legged Hawk.  The dark wrist feathers are my clue.

Really nice shots, everyone. Great thread.




I've always wanted to get a wild golden eagle in flight. They are much more difficult than the bald eagles I've shot. Spookier, faster, wilder.

This one was hunting in the snow.

Hmm, are you sure? I thought Rough-legged hawks had darker underwings...

The two look close but the tail feathers to me looks like a Ferruginous hawk.

Hmm. The tail feathers on the one I pictured are clean and light colored, without the band. (I have other images on my blog, which I think I linked.) The tail feathers of my bird kind of grade into darker tips, but there isn't that dark band like adult Rough-leggeds have...looking at Sibley, it might actually be a Juvenile Rough-legged Hawk. At least, given the illustration, a juvi is the closest match of all (closer than either an adult Rough-legged or an adult Farruginous.)

Part of the problem with identifying these hawks is they often have so many intermediate morphs. Red-tailed are the worst...they have more than half a dozen regional morphs, and quite a few of them end up here in Colorado. Trying to ID a Red-tailed is a mind bender.
