Hi folks it has been awhile since I last posted here on the forum but I've been known to be a streak hitter. The hawk(Coopers?) was in the tree out back and then he flew towards me and landed on the deck about 10 ft from where I was shooting from.I keep my feeders stocked for the regulars but when he shows up the party is over.----charliezap.

Coopers vs. Sharp-shinned.

now seeing the side-on view, I'd say maybe Red-Shouldered. It's not grey.

It looks pretty big, too.

We have sharp-shinned hawks in our neighborhood, but I never get shots quite this close. Not that they don't visit our feeders, but they're usually not there long enough to get a picture. They grab their meals and go.

Congratulations, these are great.

Especially the last ones in this series really came out great Charlie. It does take some effort to produce results like this with the DA55-300mm on the long end in my experience, so well done!

Great pictures Charlie, let's hope he hangs around for a bit.
