Picture of the Day - "Flyby" - Jan. 29, 2017
Had an interesting day. Still at the Sheffield Mills Eagle Watch. There were quite a few Eagles hanging out in the trees until they were scared off by people walking out of the trees right below them, even though it is posted to stay away from their perching areas. By the time the Eagles start to gather again, we were getting heavy snow squalls. The squalls didn't last long but it was long enough that we had to start heading home. During the day though, this Red-taileded Hawk kept flying by. He seemed to be checking things out and at one point perched in the same tree as some of the Eagles, much to their annoyance. Taken with Canon 7D Mark II, Sigma 150-600mm @ 600mm, 1/2000 sec, f/6.3 and ISO 640.
