I was looking for Robins in the park when suddenly a lot of noise above my head. Two Buzzards soaring and the whole Crow colony attacking them and chasing them away. My settings were all wrong for this. From shooting Robins in dark conditions I went to bright conditions and as I'm always struggling for shutter speed, I'm trained to increase shutter speed when there's suddenly more light. But it was so light that I could have lowered ISO speed a full stop as well as stop down the lens some and still have enough speed to capture the action. And on top of it all, I underexposed a bit and had to apply a bit of noise reduction on the birds. vmad
So, definitely not the best of shots, but I thought fun enough to post a couple.

The crow's head was not in the focal zone, but I include the shot to show that they're birds with an rather impressive wingspan.

Looks like you have lightening fast reaction time to get them zipping over head!
Your Buzzards are our Hawks I think.
Great captures Levina. I love the compo showing the difference in size between the Buzzards and Crows.

It seems amazing to me, the crow being a smaller bird will bully the larger buzzards away!
They got punk! ;-)a

Charles I once saw a pic (maybe here on POTN???) where a Crow had landed on the back of a flying eagle and was taking a ride :)

Thank you, Robert. Yes, you would call them Hawks.

Crows are relentless and fearless when it comes to chasing Buzzards away. There were dozens in the sky this time, one after another diving down, attacking and the Buzzards getting really annoyed and verbal. Quite a spectacle.
