Bald Eagles. Not a great picture but this is the same couple that I watched last year after "migrating" for six months. They should mate and lay eggs next month. I am monitoring the nest for Audubon as an Eagle Watch volunteer.
Terrible Purple Fringing mostly removed in PaintShop Pro between heads and chests. Still some in the background. Taken at dusk.

Another Green Bee-eater from today. Photographically speaking, previous ones were better (this time it was mid-day with harsh light and not appealing background), but I like this set for the titles I can give the photos

Bee-eater

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320

Bee eating Bee-eater

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320

Bee hitting Bee-eater

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony FE 200600mm F5.66.3 G OSS (SEL200600G) | 600.0 mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600 sec | ISO 320

It looked like the bee-eater is trying to kill the bee by beating it on the wire before eating it, just like kingfishers do with fish.

Look at the photo below

There is no stinger on the wasp, only a small hole.

That is because the bird hit the wasp against a branch, causing the stinger to break off (more pleasant for the throat)

Very nice. I think I might have tried to clone out those tree branches in the bottom of the frame. Tfs.

Tough choice, but I'll go for the first one too.
Without the tree, I would crop the top just under the birds in the right upper corner

Nice shot Fred. The Cormorant looks very peaceful.
