This is an extreme crop of a small hawk I photographed at the Baytown Nature Center this past weekend. I'd been seeing a few of these in flight but this is the first one I spotted sitting still. I like the coloration of this bird but didn't have any luck identifying it on the Internet.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
