Please correct me if the ID is incorrect. This one was sitting on a hay bale and posed for me.

Looks like a "dark phase" RTH. Excellent images with a nice setting.

Looks like you were able to get quite close. I like the cleaned up background in one of the follow-up post. Are these red-tails approachable? The ones up here in Ontario are very skittish....that is until I ran into this unusually tame one on the weekend. I wouldn't have believed it until I saw it for myself.

Excellent capture and nice setting. Good job. Since you are in Alberta this likely is the Swainson's Hawk. This one is an intermediate adult phase version. They have three versions, Light, Intermediate, and Dark phase. Since I never have seen this version it was great seeing your post:lol: Very beautiful colored raptor.

Interesting. The Red-tailed hawk's range doesn't extend into Alberta? In winters past I have seen a dark-morph Red-tail hanging around the Gatineau airport. Red-tails are notoriously wary of people which is why I'm surprised why this adult Red-tail appears so tame. This is a crop to show how close I could get: http://www.pbase.com/g​olfpic/image/63999270external link

I apologize for post. I did not mean to indicate the Red-tailed Hawk is not in Alberta. I had consulted Sibleys to see if the Swainson's was in Alberta because of the brown bib. The reddish belly is indicative of the Intermediate phase. Also the white around the beak says Swainson's. On the Red-tailed the brown-reddish chest pattern is reversed in that species Intermediate phase. I have found this forum to be a great learning resource for birds, photography and bird photography. I liked seeing a good photo of a bird I never seen. I also thought the effect of neat image greatly improved the photo. I'm going to get neat image.:lol:

Nice shots.
As a side note, the amount of noise at ISO 400 surprises me. I do not get that even at ISO 800 with my MkIIN unless I do a major crop enlargement.??


EF-S: 10-22, 18-55, 17-55, 60.
EF(non L): 15, 24, 35, 50 f/1.4, 85, 100 f/2.8, 24-85, 75-300
A whack of L lenses and a few EOS cameras.
