These shots were taken this morning looking out my office window... Not too bad, considering it was a consumer-grade zoom lens and thru a dirty tinted double-pane window. Range about 40-50 feet, out in the grass around our building. K100D, Promaster 70-300 zoom. The shot with him sitting on the building next door is around 80-90 yards, 100% crop. PP was mostly just a touch of sharpening, and lightening hte shadows to show detail on his shadowed side.

He swooped in, played around tossing the wood chips around (looking for edibles, presumably), went off and sat on the building next door a while (long enough for me to go grab camera from car), then came back. I was able to get a few shots that weren't too blurry...
