  1. Okay, I know these are not bird shots, but how many total eclipse does one get to see in a lifetime, and this one was practically in my backyard? Well, some sixty miles north of my backyard, but that's what back roads are for, beating eclipse traffic. These were taken along Ankeny Hill Road, south of Salem, Oregon, a location that was dead center in the path of totality. I did not have filters for my camera so I could not take any shots before or after totality which means these three at totality were all I got. The rest of the time I just enjoyed the view through my eclipse glasses while visiting with my eclipse viewing neighbors. 10:17:56 - very near peak totality 10:18:18 - totality was beginning to wane 10:18:22 - totality was nearly over, the first rays of the sun are beginning to peak through at about 1:00 o'clock

  13. Three Raptors needing ID

    Actually, a triple post. When posting during Whatbird's down period, I, like many others, kept trying again when my first attempts appeared to fail. Sorry about that. Thanks for all your help psweet.
  14. One more raptor needing ID

    Okay, thanks for the help everyone!
  15. One more raptor needing ID

    Maybe a Rough-legged Hawk? I had this one labeled as 'Hawk 4' and my previous Rough-legged as 'Hawk 2'. Comparing them thy look very similar.
