Thanks, Charles, Paul.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime event to shoot a lammergier ( I think).

Robert, these are unique shots. And I like that you follow several nests.
Somehow the skies behind your bald eagles are a little mushy as if there is a lot of color noise.

Juvenile Bald Eagle probably 2 or 3 years old.

Bald Eagle.
2 of the five nests I am monitoring are incubating eggs. This guy at the University of Florida Agriculture Research location helped to successfully raised to eaglets last year but has yet to settle down this year.

Beautiful work with the vulture, I like the processing on 1, but the poses on 2 and especially 3 are fantastic.

If the third were my photo I would be tempted to rotate and crop to get rid of the background so it's all feathers and face.

I've never seen a babbler, cute little bugger.

Beautiful babbler. Never heard of them, let alone see one.
Too bad your outings didn't deliver 'stuff'

I have an unusual bird I shot this summer.
It's a Lammergier or Bearded Vulture


It has drastic food habits


It's swallowing a complete goat's leg here.
It has stomach acid with a pH of 1.0, enough to dissolve the goat's leg

And off with the next bone



All with ILCE-1 100400GM +1.4X

I went out birding for the past fortnight. There's not much to see these days.

I will process and post some shots from the summer. I will avoid reposting the same image.

This pair of Bald Eagles stay together all year but have not incubated eggs in three years. I feel this may be the year.
