It definitely a hawk and red tail my guess... since that's what's around here. When there is actually sunshine you can see the tail feathers fairly well - but they don't land in palm trees that I know of. The next lense length isn't weather resistant like this one but it will get out to 305 in 35mm equivalent. That would be an improvement. Have it on the wish list.

Maybe a lake Tim hunts at. He tells me his hunting prowess is so high that even the ducks know of him and they've been taken to imitating robins so they can survive. Tim wouldn't exaggerate about this would he?

Ken, you come on down south and I'll show you the swamp the thought extinct, Ivory Billed Woodpecker, is suppose to be in! Like your story of ducks in a tree, the Audobon society could never get a picture!

Seriously, come on down to the GC, I promis you want starve. We might get Ed to make a crape!

Unlike most other ducks, the wood duck has sharp claws for perching in trees and normally nests in tree cavities.
excerpted from: Wood Duck - Ducks Unlimited Canada


Could be the Canuck Hunters have drove them up thar eh?

They're also often spotted in dens and on benches in wood shops.

Don't ask me why I came up with that. Oh, maybe thinking of Steve's eyes peeling ....

They probably got married because she kept her eyes out for him?
