While photographing a Gray Hawk in Big Bend National Park in June, it coughed up a pellet and I managed to capture the action.

WOW!! What else can I say? These captures are absolutely an opportunity of a birder's lifetime that I would give anything to see for myself! Thank you so much for giving me and all the other folks fortunate enough to view here, the opportunity to view your amazing adventure in Nature!! WELL DONE INDEED :)

Very cool, I've never seen this in the wild, let alone with a camera in hand. Great Capture


One day I was walking on the street and somebody handed me a camera. I looked at them and said, "This is not a Canon, what do I look like? A charity case?" So I took it, and THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

Nicely done, Lee. I coughed up a similar pellet a little while ago.

I used to see Gray Hawks all the time when I lived in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, but never doing this. Love it when things like this are posted and shared.
