Default Recent Flying Birds - 9 images

I have been very busy and traveling a lot so I haven't posted in a while. Here are some images I made over the last couple of months. Some were made on a trip I took to the upper Texas coast to photograph migrating birds of prey. The others were made here in Florida. The photo of the Great Horned Owl shos a GHO with gray eyes. This is something I have never seen before. All the GHOs I have seen have bright yellow or yellow-orange eyes. Has anyone seen or heard of a GHO with gray eyes?
I hope you like the images. Thanks for looking.

1. Gray eyed Great Horned Owl

2. American Bittern in Flight.


3. Coopers Hawk.


4. Crested Caracara Adult.


5. Crested Caracara Juvenile with animal bone.


6. Coopers Hawk in flight.


7. Coopers Hawk in flight.


8. Adult Peregrine Falcon in flight.


9. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher in flight.

Stunning BIFs Jim. Always a pleasure viewing your images. I'd be happy to see any GHO but I can't help with the eye colour.

Jim you are without any doubt in my opinion the number 1 bird in flight photographer in this forum, your work is always just so very awesome. For new members that don't know you I suggest that they check out in the sticky posts your kind photography guidelines.

I third or forth or fifth the "WOW!" For the coopers hawk I'd add a word something like spectacular, but one more fantastic like that hasn't been invented yet? I think the word smith invertor guy saw the pics and is speechless!
