    Wow! I'm impressed, you got some great shots. Is the last one a Kestral?

    Raymond,

    I'll go along with Eric, looks like a female Kestrel.
    #6 shows the wings are brown. On the males they are more grey like the
    color on his, oops, her head. Great captures again.

    I really like the angle of #1.

    Bill

    Very nice Ray, love the flight shots. Tell me where are you spotting these? I would love to get these kinds of opportunities. From time to time i'd spot a red tail hawk but it's very rare around my parts. I usually have to drive to whitby or north of the city.

    try these guys for bird ID's.

    Thanks Airic, cool site.
    thanks bill, i am sure you guys are right.
    thanks Joat.. I have spent a ton of time driving around learning there hangouts., just come to Hamilton, and drive along the service Roads along the Qew bettween 20 Hwy and Beamsville.. On a day like today, you will see many redtails., but.. when you get out of your car, there gone!

    There are Redtails everywhere around here, and it's a blast trying to capture one!
