The first four shots are of same bird - perched, then took off as crow harassed it.
Next three are of a different individual.
Then finally a bald eagle that was harassed - again by crows.

|Great gray owl|
Monday, November 10, 2014
|What a small perch! You can see the "pants" - |
feathers on the legs.
|You can see the "pants" here, too!|
|This red-tailed hawk just had lunch - look at the crop!|
|Great horned being 007.|
|The bird did not know I was there - about a quarter mile away.|
Got to watch it stretch!
|Thought the bird was going to fly off - still just stretching!|
|The gig might be up - how on earth do they hear you that far away?|
|Must hear a mouse . . .see the feet come down?|
|Thought the bird was getting ready to pounce . . .|
|Look at the start of that wing-over!|
|Look how the wings tip up as the bird gets into the tall grass.|
|You can see how tall that grass is.|
|Getting back up - see how the body is almost straight up.|
|Again - the bird hardly needed an incline to get height.|
|This is how well the bird blends in. This is with a zoom.|
|This is the landscape without a zoom.|
