  1. Raptors are so majestic in the air and strong in land. You have the knack for aerial shots, Donna. Excellent work! πŸ™‚

  2. Another great series! My favorite is the crested caracara, especially because it’s not something I see in my neck of the woods. Thanks, as always, for sharing!

      • Oh dear, now I am embarrassed! 😳 My short-term memory problems manifest again. Looks like I had heard of Crested Caracaras before, and from your recent blog post, no less. (I even commented on them before…) Sorry about that!

        • No worries ever!!! I appreciate your following me, and oh my, I have been in overload with sharing birds and posts in past two months, even I have to check to see when was the last time I shared a specific species (I try to ‘change it up’ with bird species). Soon it’ll slow down and I’ll be digging through my files trying to find something to share! πŸ˜‰

          • Well, I love the “overload” and look forward to your posts. πŸ™‚ But I will understand the coming slow down — you can’t remain stationed in birding paradise forever!

    • Thank you, Indira! They do! I just photographed a pair of eagles, they were really, really high in the sky and the shots just didn’t work. I love when they come lower! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Denise! I love learning about raptors. I’m still not the best with some of the hawks, but I’ve got my handy-dandy hawk ID book to help me figure any shot out. Which means it’s possibly a new lifer! πŸ˜‰
