Red-tailed Hawk juvenileRed-tailed Hawk juvenile – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/2500, ISO 640, -0.3 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 321mm, natural light, not baited

Just a simple juvenile Red-tailed Hawk this morning that I took last year on Antelope Island State Park as it flew past me with the dark Farmington complex rocks in the background.

I have had quite a bit on my hands this past week so I have been slow to reply to comments, hopefully I will get caught up soon.

Charlotte Wasylik; a young birder and budding bird photographer from the prairies of Alberta, interviewed me and published the interview on her blog “Prairie Birder” yesterday and I wanted to share the interview with my viewers. You can see the full post here.

Good birding!

    Thank you everyone for your comments on this image and for viewing my interview on Charlotte’s blog. She is an amazing young woman and I am certain she is going to make the future of birding and bird photography brighter in the future!

    Wonderful interview, Mia! I left a comment there as well. I can’t even imagine how wonderful Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is, based on the habitat diversity you describe. Really enjoyed the read and perusing Charlotte’s blog, thanks for linking out to it.
