By chance I cycled to the lab today with my Tamron 150-600 and 5DIII  in my backpack when I saw a dogfight between two birds. I couldn't make out what they were until I downloaded: a female sparrowhawk battling a crow. These are all 100% crops at 600mm, f/6.3, 1/640, iso 640 + 1 2/3 ev. The quality is not bad when you consider how cropped these are.
5D III, 70D, Powershot SX50, 300/2.8 II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, 70-200/4 IS, 24-105, 15-85, Sigma 10-20, Tamron 150-600.

Hi Alan, could you post the uncropped 1455? I think it might make a neat desktop background if the saturation was tuned up on the blue a bit and the birds were cropped to the upper right 1/3 corner, depending on what the sky is like. I like pictures like that with a big amount of blue sky, most people think its boring but i find the gradient of colour in blue sky very captivating.

Here are all 4 uncropped but reduced to 1200x800. If you tell me which one you want and what size, I'll either post it or give you a link to download it.

ps they were circling each other and maneuvering like the Red Baron and his foe in WWI over France.

wow, after seeing these I might have to investigate the tamron a little more.

I like the first one, sparrowhawk 1455.

here's a couple more BIF (barely) the eagles were having a huge feud over some fish heads, the adults would gang up and chase off the juvies, and then turn on each other for the prime chunks.
