Sign of aging.

While in the archive, I fell in love with my hawk again, and prepped it for the 2019 contest. Then, I checked the exif. Missed it by that much. So, I'm presenting it to you folks.

It's cropped and resized only.

"Off; in the distance."

It's my sharpest bird picture yet.

And, here's the original, resized. The lens is set at 400mm. It's in a cottonwood included in a series of cottonwoods (populus wislizeni) that form an avenue which greets me on the way to town.  These tree are now in orange/yellow stage of Autumn.  More later on that.

Since I'm not all that acquainted with hawks, I venture to say that it's a red tailed hawk, or, "gavilán pollero."

Of course C&C is welcome.
