St. Rose - I have commented before that this species is our most difficult hawk to photograph because it is small and never allows us to approach close enough for a decent shot. This bird broke the rules, permitting me to get a nice view from the car without disturbing it. I am not fond of taking shots of birds on power lines but I will make an exception in this case.

Kingston - Wolfe Island I had another chance to capture this challenging species on a recent trip. Nice late day light highlights the bright colours.

Kingston - Kestrels have to be one of the most difficult raptors to shoot. Their tolerance of approach is very low and since you need to get closer than with other raptors because of their small size, it makes it an even greater challenge (Sharp-shinned Hawks are fairly close in size but much easier to deal with). I moved up slowly with my car and managed to get a few shots that I cropped. Normally I quit before I even start – they are that difficult to deal with.
