If you want to observe them or take their photos, don’t look at Raptors. The majority of my knowledge of the birds I watch and photograph comes from experience. Sadly, I am not even a “kind-of” scientist. That’s true. However, I do have my own methods, which include keen observation, a magnificent zoom lens and better than average photography. That’s how I know Raptors do not like to be looked at. Any kind of eye contact will cause a Raptor to leave the area immediately.
Well, stated like that, I have sort of gone over the top. Really, you can look at a Raptor. Just don’t let the Raptor know you are looking at it. Difficult at first, but try to remember how you looked at your Mom while stating an obvious untruth. Wasn’t it sort of like looking off in another direction while keeping a watchful eye on her smiting hand? Right. That is the “off-angle” look you need to use with Raptors. And, it is tricky at first when you combine it with getting the camera set and focused just right.
So, the bottom line in this lesson is don’t look at Raptors. At least don’t let them know you are looking at them.
