    Great pictures. Could you name the birds? I'm just curious (and stupid when it comes to ornithology).

    The pose of the 3rd is great. 'What's that? A camera? What does it do?'....:mrgreen:


    so these were taken in some sort of bird refuge?

    Thank you all for the comments, they are just the most gorgeous of creatures.

    The place I took them is a bird of prey centre, they have falconry courses and the like and keep a large number of birds of prey on site.

    Here goes on the names, I could be wrong ornithology isn't my strong suit either!

    1: Bald Eagle
    2: Tawney Owl
    3: Kestrel
    4: Peregrine Falcon
    5: Barn Owl
    6: Barn Owl
    7: Hooded Vulture
    8: Black kite

    great job on getting such sharp feather detail! My faves are 2, 3 5 & 6 <-- nice one getting the owl's full wingspan in the frame. Reeeally enjoyed looking at this series.
