Nicely tracked, although the image looks a little washed out! Is this at full speed as it also looks slightly slow-mo.

Great bird, amazing its comfortable that close to built up areas!

Cheers

I'd love to see your clips Richard but my version of Quick Time won't open them. My Windows player does not recognise the compressor used. Do I need QT Pro?

Mat, what are you playing it with?

Thanks Mat,
The shot was heavily edited in post. CC, steady shot was added and did the slomo effect.
Clip was shot in 60i and then dropped in After Effects and rendered in 24p, with 50% slow speed for a somewhat smooth look.
Camera shake was very bad, very winding in the Prairies of Katy Texas.
To remove shake I used Steady Shot in Premiere, once I got it smoothed out then dropped it on After Effects.
Whew!!

Matt

You said "Great bird, amazing its comfortable that close to built up areas!"

In answer to you comment, during the Fall, Winter season the Canadian Snow geese migrate to the Katy prairies, well the bald eagles follow them here. because they are a source of food.
So, they hunt all through out the Katy prairies.
The snow geese come to rice fields of the Katy Prairies in the millions.
There are conservancy groups that are trying to stop the development in those areas. Hopefully we can all help keep nature from being destroyed.

Got your clip at last.

It was well worth slowing it down, Richard. More please.
