Hawks and birds of prey

Birds of prey – hawks, owls, eagles, can be seen all over Denver.

Here are a couple of shots I took of these elusive creatures with my Canon Powershot

S5-IS.  That camera is smarter than I will ever be.

Still looking for my first owl pic.

This little guy is a Kestrel. Kestrels are actually Swallow-like FALCONS. They hover for prey , beating wings like a Kingfisher. (Thank you, Petersen Field Guides.)
