C/Sparrowhawks Part 2

Went out to Collie river again to check on the fledglings and found them in a very prolonged noisy duel. Not sure if it was sibling spat or the beginning of this terriority isnt big enough for both of us.

What I do know is neither I or my camera were quick enough to get decent snaps as they battled through forest canopy.

The first pix was about best I could get though you tell from following photos, they werent happy with each other

love that second shot

Aiming for DSLR-quality shots with a bridge camera


Very interesting encounter, seems like you were quite close to the action?  - great photos, really like the last one.

Wow great photos, very clear. You get an idea of how big that middle toe is compared to the BGH. You must have been pretty close.

Cheers Dev and very interesting about the toe thanks.

Yes I was about 20 metres from them and they couldnt care less. (Try that with adults :) )

Ironically I probably would have better chance of getting a clear photo when they were doing their aerial duels in between trees if I had a clear view from further away.

Nevertheless it was amazing to watch them racing about the trees

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

Great shots laza. Love the second and last ones in particular. A lot of raptor shots on the net seem to have been digitally enhanced. These are real shots of real birds in real circumstances. Well done mate!
