A great example of a 'local' Eastern Red-tailed Hawk - and just how light that patterning can get. In identifying Red-tails, the "white V on the scapulars" is yet another ID trait we look for, but it exists in varying degrees. Sometimes age, sun and wear account for this. . . . #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #bird #nature #naturephotography #bird_brilliance #nb_nature_brilliance #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #bnsbirds #nature_perfection #feather_perfection #birdstagram #bestnatureshots #birdwatching #pocket_birds #raptors #raptorphotography #raptorsofinstagram #elite_raptors #canon #7dmk2 #tamronlenses #redtailedhawk #redtailedhawks

Red Shouldered Hawk at Ellanor C Lawrence Park.
A female sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) dashes accords the horizon, in the wake of fleeing goldfinches. ———————————————————————— #Nature #BritishBirds #BirdsOfInstagram #Ornithology #ukwildlifeimages #animal_captures #CameraCentreUK #Birds #Wildlife #WildlifePhotography #TheBritishWildlife #Raptors #RaptorsOfInstagram #elite_raptors #BirdsOfPrey #BW #blackandwhite

The Bateleur (or Bateleur Eagle) is undoubtedly the most unique-looking of Africa's eagles. The long broad wings combined with an extremely short tail give it a rather strange appearance that sets it apart from the rest of Africa's amazing raptors. 🦅 . This peculiar shape is however an extremely efficient flying design that allows the Bateleur to soar on the slightest of thermals and wind updrafts while using very little of its own energy. It is one of the most specialized soaring birds on the planet. An evolutionary masterpiece. . This particular female was hunting along the Ngulia Ridge - Tsavo West National Park, Kenya . . . #bateleur #bateleureagle #eagle #elite_raptors #raptor #birdsofprey #africanraptors #africanbirds #birds #birding #birdphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #birds_illife #total_birds #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #efe_nature_or_nothing #flying #birdsinflight #feather_perfection #feather_features #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #tsavo #magicalkenya #tembeakenya #ShotsByShema

Bald eagle taking a break from fishing and resting on a fallen tree. Did you know, it takes approximately 5 years for a bald eagle to attain its iconic solid white head and tail feathers. The eagle in this photo is likely 4 years old. #baldeagle #eagle #america #fishing
A very special Wild Bald Eagle I could visit with from time to time over the years. He oddly would let me get this close and sit beside him. Of course I would never reach out, I would respect his comfort zone. There were times he would fly over to me and have his own little visit. Sooooo lucky to be in touch with my spirit animal like this. ❤️🦅 #elite_raptors #baldeagle #atonewithnature #birdsofprey #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdnerd #birds_nature #spiritanimal

Northern Hawk Owl on a mossy branch. I had a brief but amazing encounter with this owl.
🦉 Felsen und Steinbrüche stellen beim #uhu die bevorzugten Brutplätze dar. Aber auch Baum- und sogar Bodenbruten sind für ihn kein Problem, wenn er dabei ungestört ist... 😉🦉❤️ . . . 🦉 rocks and quarries represent the preferred breeding places of the #eagleowl . But it also nests in trees or on the ground, if it is undisturbed... 😉🦉❤️ . . . #bubobubo #eule #eulen #owl #owls #greifvogel #greifvögel #birdsofprey #birdofprey #raptor #vogel #vögel #bird #birds #birdphotography #natur #nature #animal #animals #falkner #falknerei #falconry #planetbirds #birdsofinstagram #elite_raptors #elite_owls #feather_perfection #birdfreaks . 📷 @wildbirdstories . www.youtube.com/wildbirdstories . www.facebook.com/wildbirdstories _____
☠️ 🐀 STOP USING RAT POISON 🐀 ☠️ - 🌳 🌳 @nycparks 🌳🌳 Rat Poison are a problem for New York City Park’s important Raptor populations like Owls, Eagles & Peregrine Falcons. I was told that just one owl 🦉 family can eat 3-5,000 rodents per season. This a photo of a Barred Owl Photographed in New York’s Central Park #barredowl #centralparknyc #nycparks Bird advocates have repeatedly condemned the city's use of rodenticide, which can be toxic for hawks and other animals. Birds of prey in urban areas, like the substantial owls & red-tailed hawk population in New York City, often hunt rats for food. Rats that have ingested rodenticide can then poison owls & hawks second-hand. . . . . #nycvegan #vegan #elite_raptors #birdsofprey #elite_owls #owl_guru #ethicalowlphotos #owlsoftheday #ip_birds #bestbirdsofig #live_love_wildlife #your_best_birds  #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #birds_illife  #sassy_birds #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #total_birds
Eastern Screech-Owl wide awake and ready to hunt. I photographed this little cutie when it was almost dark. She was highly attuned to the rodents moving in the leaves below her cavity and I loved watching her in that alert state. Eastern Screech-Owls are primarily active at night, but they will hunt at dawn or dusk and occasionally during daylight hours. These little predators sit snd wait in trees for prey to pass below. They usually make their move from a perch 6 - 10 feet off the ground. They will also snatch an insect, bat or bird on the wing, and will hit shallow water talons-first to snag small fish or tadpoles. . . . #easternscreechowl #owl #raptor #birdsofprey #elite_raptors #elite_owls #ethicalowlphoto #onlyowls #inspirenaturenow #1birdshot #shots_of_animals #pacollective #natures_marvels #birdfreaks #bestbirdshots #naturesbestphotomagazine #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #bb_of_ig #naturyst #planetbirds #marvelouz_animals #eye_spy_birds #nuts_about_birds #wild_planet_hub #teamcanon @canonusa #lenscoat @best_birds_planet
