Based on that it looks like you're right. Excellent shot.

thanks Levina! I haven't had much luck finding birds for a few months now. And when it seems like I might, the weather is nasty. Here's hoping for better luck next year.:)

Wow Tom, the rarified up there in Washington has you slipping. What makes you say this is a Sharpie?

I got the Sigma a little over a year ago (which doesn't seem possible) - and have never gone back to my 400. I really like the 150-500.
Only complaint I have is that once I got the reach, all the bird subjects seem to have gone elsewhere. It has been a strange year. I've had to remove my back yard feeders, as we have acquired a feral cat who seems to like titmice. Makes it hard to find good birds in good light.
On the plus side - I had two red-tails in the wooded lot in front of my house two days ago. With any luck, I might get a nest. Their former nesting site has been logged.:mad:

I respectfully disagree. I went with Sharpie because of the long, skinny legs and the shape of the tail feathers. Also, it's eyes are yellow - doesn't that mean it's a mature bird?

This is interesting. If that is a coops, it has the longest toes I have are seen on a coops, and a sissy beak. But, the yellow eye, is a juvi, it would be red if it were an adult, and it would look really different. Have any more shots? from other angles?

I dio have another shot posted - under the heading of "sharp-shinned hawk" (which I might have to delete if the id is totally wrong.)

here is a shot of the bird in flight - pardon the poor quality, as I can not seem to get the hang of flight shots.

Humm, I could be wrong, once in a while, I guess. The fluffed up head feathers, makes the beak look smaller, and looking at the other shot, the toes don't look all the long. Thanks, If I am going to be wrong, it is nice to have you point it out. : )
