    Thanks Eric, these are excellent photos of a great American Symbol!

    #1 is my favorite, because there is less shadowing, shame you can't control the sun.

    P.S. How do you know it's a male, did you peak? ;)

    I can tell it's a male because I saw the uncropped version. Eric cropped out the clothes shop on the left of the frame where the male is sitting waiting on his girl to come out of the shop :greenpbl:

    LOL...I know its the Male because i have been watching this pair for 2 seasons. The Male is smaller and is missing a talon on his left foot (can't see in these photos..but can in previous posts).

    You wouldn't believe how close I can get to these 2 :mrgreen:

    I love those shots of yours and can't help and be jealous of your access. Keep on shooting.
