Several birds at the bird feeder. The new bird in the neighborhood is a large hawk. I’m not sure what type of hawk at this distance, but the small birds at the bird feeder appeared to be more cautious.
Backyard Late Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Red-Tailed Hawk
I saw this large bird in the trees way back from the house. I quickly got some shots with a Nikon D3x camera and 600 mm f/4 VR lens. This was my highest resolution long distance setup at the time. The images are 100% crops after being processed with Capture One Pro and Focus Magic.
I think this is a broad-tailed hawk. The hawk and a crow kept chasing each other most of the morning. I took this image through a double-paned window, which I think is responsible for the strange bokeh.
