Great Black Hawk (juvenile)
A long-distance visitor from Mexico, Central or South America, visiting Portland, Maine. First sited in late November.
Great Black Hawk stare!
Getting a bird, any bird, to look directly at you, takes time & patience, and of course, it doesn't always happen. On this foggy morning, it did happen!

Barred Owl Sleeping
This very sleepy Barred Owl took very little notice of several photographers (including me, of course) just below him/her. This beautiful owl stuck around this same location for at least a week.

Common Loon close up
My first time seeing a Loon today, and the prep (going out in a canoe - also, I think a first for me) with my camera equipment, I have to admit was a little daunting. But the search was successful~!
