White Water Draw - Cochise County
This past week I rode along with some friends to the White Water Draw in NcNeal Arizona, just east of Tombstone..
This is a combination of a shallow lake and wetlands that were formerly part of a large cattle ranch. For more information, see these links: Northern Harrier Hawk on the hunt, photos below.
I am not sure if this is a male or female. The Cornell Ornithology Lab site shows Arizona as part of their winter range. This hunt was successful, but I was unable to catch any good shots with a critter in the birds claws.
All photos shot handheld with a monopod and shoulder stock, Canon 6D with a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary series, at 600 mm, f 9.0, 1/2500 second, ISO 800. I picked up more noise at ISO 800 than I expected, and keeping the bird in focus was a challenge. Post-production processing in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
There should be more cranes and migrating birds in January
