Great sighting and seems fairly close up too!

Aiming for DSLR-quality shots with a bridge camera

Absolutely magic laza and they posed beautifully for you.

Thanks guys

Yes Brian very lucky they were enjoying the first rays of the sun. Rather then  stuck in foilage eating and giving me the usual  auto focus breakdown :)

Very jealous. Fantastic shots of a bird I am yet to encounter. Shows the difference of the males and females very well. Did I mention I was very jealous.

Lovelly pictures.

They was  flock of Red tails around Subiaco and West Perth before Christmas, very unusual I would think.

They seem to be quite rare around the Perth environs these days.

Thank you

We get Redtails come into Bunbury from time to time.

Though normally I see 4 or 5 Whites for every red tail flock, however in last few months virtually every sighting I have had has been Redtails
