While relaxing in the backyard looking for birds to photograph, there was a sudden movement of "something" swooping down across the yard, towards the back edge that borders a conservation area - all I saw was a light-colored blur out of the corner of my eye, bigger than a cat, smaller than a golden retriever, but definitely airborne, unlike most cats and dogs.  :p All the birds that were nearby bolted in a flurry of flapping wings, away from the thing that swooped in. I was far too slow to use the camera and see the initial attack, but then a hawk comes suddenly off the ground at the edge of the woods with something in its talons. Might have been a small mammal (vole, mouse, baby squirrel).

I walked around to the other side of the yard where there a tree that hawks like to hang out in while scanning the grass for the next meal:

What are you looking at?

Anyway, the meal was not to be seen - must have escaped, the hawk couldn't have finished it in the time it took me to get across the yard, even if I was moving carefully to not alarm it.

And here is one of the birds that had visited earlier (but was long gone by the time the hawk attacked):

QUOTED IMAGE

Both shots with T3i, 100-400, ISO3200, f/10 for the coopers hawk, f/8 for the brown thrasher.

Fantastic shots!

You should take a second look at that "Coopers Hawk" though ;)

Doh! You're right, it is a red-shouldered hawk.

We have so many Coopers hawks around, and they are my usual targets, and I forgot to really look at the species of the bird in my photo. Oops...

I better make sure the photos I've described as Blue Jays aren't actually Cardinals...unless there was an off-season trade also involving the Orioles, and then it wasn't my fault.

;)

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

It's more difficult not to get a swan to pose for you!
