Winter Raptor Shots

The last 2 weeks I took part in 3 local Raptor Surveys in Union and Snyder County, here are a few shots from the trips.

The first was a great surprise, found this Peregrine Falcon in Union County:

Thought I was going to get a nice "liftoff" shot...instead I got a #2 shot:

Nice. That raptor did a J O B on the tweetie-bird.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
