Raptors at Wavecrest in Half Moon Bay
It has been ages since I've been down to Half Moon Bay to photograph raptors, I missed the migration, but I decided to go Saturday when I looked at the incredibly clear skies. On this trip, I found three species of raptor. Red-tailed Hawk, American Kestrel and White-tailed Kite. Shown here in the order the photos were taken, I present these three raptors for your enjoyment. First up is this immature Red-tailed Hawk who still has not grown its red tail feathers.
Note, all shots were taken with Canon 1Dmk4, 500mm f4 lens and 1.4X teleconverter. All shots taken on tripod and most are cropped for best composition.
