Wade, Thanks for your comment. I have an earlier post of all four of the babies that were part of this brood. It explains the circumstances under which the photo was taken. This photo was cropped about 40% but I think that shooting thru a debris stained window contributes to most of the problems. I later tried to put a ladder up outside the house but everytime I got to the top of the ladder, the mother would start doing fly-by in front of my face and then peck with her beak on the back of my head! http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=4034590
Jim, the ladder is a good idea but try this approach: Send your best friend with your worst camera up the ladder to take the picture. That photograph won't matter, but yours will, because you'll be capturing images of the mother bird attacking the photographer at the top of the ladder.
It's been said that I am diabolical but I think of it as being creative! 8~)#
Great picture! Captures the fraility of life.
An amazing shot! Guess this was shot under very difficult circumstances.
