Uptown's adult female, Zoom (b/r *4/H) and her mate G/G guard their nest after our banding team kidnapped their chicks to give them their brand new leg bands!
I owe thanks to Elizabeth Pratt, Canon's midwest region manager. She and her husband Wally, director of Uptown's Chamber of Commerce, were invited to view the banding. She brought a stunning array of Canon gear with her and allowed me use a lot of it, including her huge 500mm prime. These three pictures are taken with that lens at about 40 yards.
