Picture of the Day - "Eyes on Target" - Feb. 22, 2016

Road trip to Halifax today with a stop on the way back in Truro. While there, were received a report of a Gyrfalcon in Joggins, NS. We tried to find it but were too late. On the way back, we spotted this guy flying up to the top of a tree. We hopped out of the car but he took off before we could get a shot of him. Turns out he was just moving to a better viewpoint in a tree just down the road. Got some good shots of him in the tree and then he flew off, away from us, as usual (they always seem to do that). He then circled around and flew back towards us, letting us get some great shots of him. Taken with Canon 7D Mark II, Sigma 150-600 Contemporary @ 600mm, 1/1000sec, f/8 and ISO 800
