Just got back from PCB FLA.  Got a chance to try and work on some birs in flight…

Just got a glimpse of this fella…shootin shorebirds all week and this dadgum hawk sneaks in on me.

Thanks!  I was pretty far.  14th floor of the hotel which is about 100 yards from the beach.  This dude was out over the ocean and to the south.  The pic is heavily cropped (nearly to the max). smile

Great shots OZ!

First shot is an Osprey very good capture.

2nd pic a snowy egret.

3rd shot looks like a caspian tern, but I’m not an expert on gull/terns.
