Thoughts of Hawk Watch - 18 Jun 2020

As I pulled into the driveway here at Brownton Abbey I spotted an Osprey slowly soaring in circles and drifting this way. I had the Sony a9 and 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 lens with me so I hurriedly parked and waited for it to come closer. I took a few dozen photos as it slowly drifted over the house.

After dinner Robin and I spent some time on the deck enjoying the evening quiet and warmth. Having missed a fly-over Cooper's Hawk I decided to grab the camera and wait for something else. That something else was a nice Turkey Vulture that floated in over the yard and circled a few times before continuing west.

It got me thinking that Detroit River Hawk Watch 2020 is fast approaching.
