    On the way home from work today, a peregrine flies over my auto.
    Last weekend it was down the block, perched about 40ft. off the road.
    We live next to a bridge, no shortage of pidgeons....

    1. Gyrfalcon
    2. Aplomado Falcon
    3. Bald Eagle
    4. Harris's Hawk
    5. Barn Owl
    6. Caracara- watched youtube vid of owner describing this bird. It came out of Texas. I'm cool with it.
    7. Eastern Screech Owl
    8. American Kestral

    Got a decent peregrine image during this trip. I'll post it later.
    Thanks again:)

    My guess is that 2 and 8 are not the same. Nice pictures!

    Edit: Didn't see the above post on this page...

    My apologies for not following up. My work is busy due to that storm Sandy.

    That makes two of us... :poke:
    Actually, I have seen your images of snowy owl. Thumbs up!!!


    I would like to thank David/Emydura for turning me on to the unsharpen mask.
    Not sure about the technical reason how it works, but seems to be the way to go during processing.
    Also would like to thank Dot/slipperfan for talking about using tripod. Was trying to reinvent the wheel before, I guess, and now have a quality tripold.
    Bulky, but worth it.

    Hope everyone remembers that these were captive/rescue animals. They all had leashes on the legs, so they weren't going to be flushed.
    Thank you! I had fun:)

    Going to check out some snow geese in a few minutes, same place where that snowy owl was 14 or 15 months ago.
