sort of off topic here sorry

anyone know of a good place where eagles, hawks, owls etc hang out? other than the zoo ;) lol

I can find small birds like herons, ducks, cardinals, blue jays etc... pretty easy in my yard :)

I would like to find out myself. Lets keep it close by ,not hundreds of miles away. Rumor has it there is a bald eagle on Grosse lle and this place http://www.waynecounty​.com/parks/cwinds_park​.htm (external link)

I took a couple of pics of a Bald Eagle late this summer at Cross Winds Marsh. Kinda on the other side of Detroit for you but still managable. Seems they have quite a bit of fowl, the eagle pic is one of a pair near their nest (on the east side of the marsh).

There is a full list of birds spotted in the park on the website.

Pics taken with my 40D and 70-200 2.8IS. I am itching for a longer lens for these types of ocassions.

And then this thing. I already forgot what someone called it, but this bird was huge.

A Crane or a Blue Herin? (I'm not sure if that's spelled right)

I am itching for a longer lens for these types of ocassions.

This is a start:
70-200 f/2.8 & 2X TC combination "Test"
Links to other tests in there & Post #8 shows f/8 effective. I suggest that you go up to f/11 if you can.

POTN at Waterford Hills - Open Wheel Club Racing.

A Crane or a Blue Herin?

Great Blue Heron, otherwise known as GBH here.

There it is Heron. I saw like 30 of them in a field by work about a month ago. I've only usually seen them with themselves or pairs. Was unaware of them in 'flocks'.

They group up to fly south. Interesting site--and interesting how much noise they make.

Flocks, I haven't seen them either. Maybe in Florida? OTOH, I lucked out one evening with some Egrets.
Sunset Egrets?

I agree - nice eagle Simoli. I've been to Crosswinds twice since fall and didn't find anything but geese and swans. It's nice to see that there is actually more there. I'll have to try again when spring comes. I'm already ready for it.
