Perfect portrait, very well done here! I really like the smooth, almost muted colors and background, must have been some really nice light.

thanks. a lot of fog that morning.

Hi Mickey, Theres an app called Merlin by Cornell Labs you can download for free, it's very helpful and easy to use. My first thought was your bird is a Red Shoulder Hawk, not 100% sure though.
Harry

Thank you very much, I will check out the app!

And thank you for your take on what bird this is!

Eastern Towhee came back, but I only had a second to try and get another capture. Definitely not the best capture

I have never before photographed a YCNH from this perspective. Uncropped as well, out the window of my SUV.

Great Horned Owlets...all of the original three have now left the nest. This was taken a few days ago when there were still two left.
