Challenge: Portrait Of A Wild Bird (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 300mm f/4.0L IS USM
Date: Dec 26, 2009
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Animals, Birds
Date Uploaded: Dec 26, 2009

Taken at Fern Ridge Reservoir near Eugene. Spent about 6 hours there over two days. Harrier hawks, unlike redtails, like to hunt by flying low over fields. They also seem to like to land and watch from the ground, something I've never seen a redtail do.

And they are faster than a 'speeding bullet' too.

Good shot. Great processing.

Hey Doc, nice shot, but I would have tried for a white-tailed kite or short-eared owl there, but what the heck, you placed well.
