Day 50 Bird no50: Common kestrel Scientific name: Falco tinnunculus I just love falcons. The fact that they look cute but are deadly. The common kestrel belongs to the falcon family and they are quite widespread. Very economical while hunting, kestrels swoop on prey from a short distance. Their palate is very exclusive, only mouse-like prey is acceptable. Quite picky like kids. I saw this female perched in a swathe of green in the desert of Kutch in January 2018. #travel#birds ...
As I walked past my French doors today I noticed chaos in my backyard as a hawk swooped in. If you look closely you can see it’s victim … one of my resident male Cardinals that have been here this winter. I believe this to be the same hawk in a photo I posted recently that, with the help of others, was identified as a Cooper’s Hawk. Getting a better look today, and being able to compare it, unfortunately, to the male Cardinal, I’m leaning more toward Sharp-shinned Hawk. What do you think? . . . . . #coopershawk ...

Titled “ In the Palm of your Hand “... 2017. This is a Palm Warbler that I shot while I Venice,Florida,USA. It is sometimes called the “ Eastern Palm” or “Yellow Palm”. I got in as close as I could and than cropped as much as I felt necessary and still show the beauty of the feathers and details . #birds#birdsofprey
What a day what a day here on the Northern tier! After an early 0650 departure we headed west in search of some 🐺s! Finding coyotes, foxes, and Bison. Only to eventually lay eyes on 1118F the injured female alpha of the mollies sub group. After viewing her for awhile we headed east and found these two gems! At the top a bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) Bottom golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) . . . . #yellowstonenationalpark#viewsfromthezeiss @animalplanet @natgeowild @discovery @zeissnature @ynpforever
The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) is a very special birds of prey for Indonesia's capital, Jakarta. This bird is the official mascot of Jakarta since 1989. Its appearance is somewhat very distinguishable from other diurnal raptors in the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia, and Australia due to its red-brown plumage with white head and chest. . . The difference of the Haliastur genus compared to other raptor genus is that they have circular nostrils. . . #kites#haliastur ...
Repost @ajpaulphoto • • • • • • This American Kestrel has just finished her lunch. About the size of a jay, these tiny but fierce falcons are the smallest birds of prey native to North America. In my opinion their small size, striking markings, and relatively large eyes make them some of the cutest of the raptors as well. #americankestrel#kestrel
A very curious and fluffy Maverick. He is one of our educational American Kestrels. With the winter temperatures still being a little chilly, this guy knows how to fluff up and trap warm air between his feathers. ———————————————— Please follow us @raptor_rehab_of_kentucky ———————————————— #birds#bird

「SPLASH」 「SPLASH」 Female feet rush though the rainy streets, followed by heavy gasping, her chest felt tight, her heart beating faster than she could keep track of, the woman stopped in her tracts. "BARBARA DARLING!!!!!" A voice bellows from beyond the buildings followed by a tall shadow. Barbara exhaled roughly as she kept going, she couldn't go fast enough, she thought. "OH I DO LOVE A GOOD CHASE!" HAHAHAHAHAHAAH the laugh echoed, her body began giving out as she hit the ground, the shadow stood tall over the fallen, drenched redhead and pulled out a gun..... Then...... 「BZZZZZBZZZZZZBZZZZ」 Barbara opened ...
I got to check out this gathering of bald eagles on the WA coast. It seemed strange until I saw the large, washed up carcass on the beach that must have drawn them here. A special thanks goes to @midwest2pnw for spotting the group as we drove down the beach. #baldeagle#wildlife
