1st for me
« on: February 09, 2016, 05:29:08 PM »
Drove around about 3 hrs on my day off today looking for a Ferruginous Hawk.  Saw a couple of them but had no way to slam on the breaks and get pics.  Saw a lot of Ibis flocks and got some good shots of Sand Hill Cranes standing in a field.  Also witnessed something have never seen before; a kettle of Turkey Vultures being harassed by both Red Tails and Northern Harriers-also missed good shots of that event.  While at home deleting most of the photos I took earlier in the day saw this big bird flying over the house, first time for me seeing a Bald Eagle flying over the house.

So this is a lifer for your birding endeavors?
Congrats!!

I love these birds. (even if they are technically scavengers...) :)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?
