Video: A Few Raptors

So I shot about 30 minutes worth of Red-tailed Hawks skimming along a ridge yesterday during a snow storm. I planned on putting together a montage of the clips at 1/2 speed to just make a short video. But today I inadvertently deleted everything on the memory card before saving the videos to my computer... Nice job. So instead I threw together a few clips of a Kestrel, a couple Red-tailed Hawks, a Rough-legged Hawk, and a Golden Eagle and made this short video:

All of this was shot this month in northern Utah (hence the caption)--some of the video has obvious dust as I hadn't cleaned the sensor in a while.  Over the next couple months hopefully I will get a little better with the video and get some cool stuff.

? Because Bilsky didn't shoot the video or put the footage together.

@ Anonymous - I assume you're referencing my enjoyment (and perhaps overuse) of the imovie video montage. Don't worry, my 2011 version is in the works and coming soon. Nice to have a fan.

The Roughleg at the end is awesome! One of my favorite birds.
