My hawk friend is starting to get a little more tolerant of me after several encounters over the past week or so. Seems he finally got the crows off his back and I went outside this morning to find two bluejays giving him a hard time. This guy swooped down and nipped at his wings. That is one brave bluejay! The hawk is looking at him like, "Seriously?!"
I am using my 50-200mm lens and so far he hasn't been close enough to get a really good shot, but I'm sure I'll get him soon now that I am getting familiar with his feeding times and patterns. =) Looks like this guy is some type of buteo. Probably a young red-tailed hawk.
