Thanks Rev!  I liked that one quite a bit myself!  :D  I love your shots of the GBH with the ground squirrel!  What an unusual capture!  I've got them catching snakes and fish, but never anything like that!  I didn't even know they would be interested in that type of kill... Fascinating, really!  Thanks for posting!

Glad you enjoyed the shots..I could not believe my eyes.  It was moments after I got out of my vehicle.  I just happened to have the 400mm attached and saw an elderly couple looking in horror.  Walked a little closer and spotted this scene.  I was able to nail a few shots before he took off with his capture alive.
Thanks
Rev

Post your Bird Portraits here :-)

Parrots, Birds of Prey, Herons and all the others ... Just post your portraits here :-)

The main idea of this topic is that the bird is clearly the main part component of the picture and that it is not a bird in flight or small bird on large tree or group shot ...

This bird brain tried to fly into our window about 6 times. He must have a concussion by now.
