Not the greatest shot but really wrapped to have this guy visit my birdbath.

This female Red-tailed Hawk that I have been photographing for some time is now incubating egg(s) (two fledged the nest last year from what I can tell) so I won't be seeing her for a little while because I avoid going near their nest during this time of year because her mate is very skittish and I don't want him avoiding the nest because someone is standing around it and I'd rather not draw attention to it with me being near it because there are local photographers who are more concerned with getting their shots and/or they don't realize how their presence can interrupt actively nesting raptors. Only a couple of photographers I know and trust know about the nest location and they approach photography the same way I do...respecting what you're photographing and understanding when a raptor doesn't want you around it.

This was taken a few weeks ago before she laid egg(s).

One of my hawks is on the nest now but no worries about getting anywhere near close, it's 65 feet up a pine tree. I've thought about climbing up and installing a nest cam and wondering if I'm too old for that stunt.

If you do, could you, at least, film the installation ? Might be entertaining !  :p

The male from this pair is one of those hawks that as soon as you make eye contact with him from 100 yards away he will fly and move further away from you so I avoid trying to get pictures of him. His mate is the total opposite and she's actually walked up to me and just sat and looked at me from about 8' away and started preening after finishing a duck she had caught in front of me. It's amazing how different each hawk is.

A nest cam would be interesting to see and if I had a pair of hawks nesting in my yard I would be thinking about doing the same thing with the proper permits of course.

Lesson's Motmot (formerly Blue-crowned Motmot), Unfortunately flew before I could get a shot that included his entire, cool tail.

Gorgeous capture.
I've got more snow coming, hoping for 1/2 this good.

Thank you, Like many of us, I too love cardinals in the snow.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.

Hey Medicine Man! I like the pic and I'm curious what you think of the 150-600 G2? I may be buying a new lens for my wife and I, and I have been waffling between the G2 and the Canon 100-400 Mark II. Do you have any advice or thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance for your help!

And if anyone else wants to jump in, please do!
