This is a bad image (severe crop!!) but I had to share it. 5 years ago seeing an eagle here in western PA was a rarity. Yesterday I had a baseball game assignment for the newspaper (had the 70-200 mounted, explains severe crop) when I heard a lot of racket overhead and this is what I saw. 2 minutes later the Osprey came back empty handed.

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

MISSISSIPPI KITES

There are still lots of Mississippi Kites soaring over the Katy Prairie, catching dragonflies and cicadas in preparation for their long migration to central South America. I am seeing from six to a dozen every morning, some close, some too far to photograph. They will be gone, in another 3 weeks or so. For a while, there was a family group of three, right over my backyard. These two images show the difference between adult and juvenile plumage:

The adult male's light gray head is easy to over expose against the bright blue sky:

The juvenile's plumage is more colorful than the adults but they are noticeably less graceful in the sky:

These are handheld, 65 point zone focus and cropped about 50%.

Great captures! You got the shots I was after. We also had a family living in the next door tree, but every time I brought out the camera, the lens fogged up too much!
I'm down the road from you near Richmond.


Camera hit me in the face, now I have a bokeh eye.

Thank you. I take my rig out and set it on the backyard table. Then I go back in the AC and make a cup of coffee, have a few sips and then go back outside. In about 5 minutes, the condensation is gone. I never tire of watching these fantastic flyers

Nice Mike! They are everywhere right now. I was on the Katy Prairie Friday but only saw caracara.

I'm with you on the camera acclimation, put it out early so it's ready.

Same area and same date but two different years, Long-tailed skua/jaeger in Northern Norway can really experience different climate/weather conditions between seasons!
Øvre Dividalen NP, Troms, Norway. These birds are great flyers with real elegance!
