Hawk Tree Top Take-Off

Hawk in Tree_v2_Brigantine_400mm 20D_v1MG_3549-2We noticed a hawk in the trees by the turnaround along the two way section of the Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge In Oceanville, NJ.  I was photographing the hawk as it was looking around and also at me. Then it moved to the top of another tree. After a while it flew off and was able to get a few shots of the takeoff. I was using a Canon 7D with a Canon 400mm DO lens and Canon 1.4x Teleconverter. (FIeld of View – sort of equivalent would be 896mm on Full Frame Camera). I always have trouble ID’ing hawks. Do not know why. Let me know!

  1. Great photos! I have the same trouble with Hawks. I’m hoping my bird identifying skills improve with time!
