Thanks for the information
I have to read some stuff to get an idea of this habit and what causes it.
The live stream is funny

Long-eared Owl is my favourite of all animal species, but I've never seen one in here in the UK. They are so elusive and sensitive to disturbance that reports are usually suppressed to prevent people coming to see them.

There are a few known locations in the UK where they exhibit this same behaviour of communal roosting in winter that are allowed to be reported publicly because they are in trees can't be easily approached (for example, on small islands with no physical access).

To see them in the wild I traveled to Northern Serbia where there are many significant roosts (Kikinda is the famous town where there can be up to 1,000 birds just in the square during winter months - we counted c40 birds in one tree there). I blogged about it back in 2013.

Great bee-eater, particularly the one on the barbwire, that integrates all colors nicely.

"Day of the Condor"
I was traveling, sightseeing, looking to find interesting things to photograph, nothing really planned and just out of the blue, did come across one of the most interesting things I have ever seen
this is where it happened

1.





2. free flying California Condors





3.





4.





5.

All photos unedited, taken w my 70-350mm, a6500 so I didn't get close to the birds
To say they seemed tame is probably an understatement . They are on the Critically Endangered Species list
All 500 or so that are left are tagged like these and carefully watched over
a6000, a6500, Zeiss 16-70, Sony 70-350G, Rokinon 12mm f.2, Rokinon 21mm f, 1.4, Rokkor MC 58mm f, 1.4 < Keep it Simple / Travel lite >

Those Californian Condors are rare, but it seems they were as rare as 22 specimens. impressive.

Anyway, a less threatened bird from my hike last Saturday:

Sony A6400 | Sony 70-350G | 350mm | f/8 | 1/80s | 400iso
