Swainson hawks are migrating south for their southern haunts in Mexico and Central America and are passing through northern Utah. Got in to quite a few of them today including this rufus dark morph adult...they are a strikingly beautiful raptor! Attached are several different frontal poses...notice the blood on the beak, he already had breakfast!

Again, not fantastic shooting, but I felt I needed to contribute! There has been a good variety of birds in my yard lately, but they mostly shoot off as soon as I look at them. I'm not sure, is this a scrub when?

@melanieylang Melanie, a very nice shot.

Just a thought, what is your in-camera sharpening set at? If you can, turn it down a bit. Same goes for in-camera noise reduction. Better to do both these things in post-processing, where it is much easier to apply with a lighter touch.

The default settings are usually very heavy handed, and the first things I change when I get a new camera.
