Today was an exceptional day. It was 21F at dawn and the temperature rose into the  lower 60s by 2 PM today. The hawks were warming in trees and on utility poles this morning. I got an interesting sequence of a juvenile Red Tail hawk launching this morning; this whole sequence takes paces in 0.7 seconds: used a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 300L IS f/2.8 with a 1.4x TC by Canon:

Two young Bald Eagles swept in over the Little Buffalo this morning before the sun came out (they may be 2-5 years old); pictures are of gliding, landing, and balancing, then later the two (male and female together). The male is the smaller bird. Taken with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 300L IS 2.8 Lens with a Canon 1.4X TC:
