Wow, awesome!

That is terrific. No, not just the great pics, but 500 different species?

Heck, I'm 55 years of age and I just saw my first owl in the wild recently. I think it's special (and it is to me) when I spot a red tail hawk.

Stunning!!! Great series of this very fine and very rare hawk!

WOW! This is way cool! It looks more like a kite than a hawk. The red eyes and legs remind me of Snail Kites. Well done!
