This was literally point and shoot. The bird came by unannounced so I swung the lens up and fired, hoping the settings would work.

Thanks Sue. My Canon cameras are 7D Mark II. I work with a 150-600 Tamron and a Canon 500. My preferred lens is the 500 even though it covers less but at other times only the zoom will work with the subjects. This was with the 500 handheld which is tough because of weight and bulk but when it works it excels. I would have that lens on a tripod for less mobile subjects.

Impressive shot of an impressive species. For me this will always be tied to Dr David Bird, who educated so many on this falcon.

I love the adults. Great markings and such a majestic species. Dr. Bird is also one of the prime movers on the Canada Jay renaming issue.
