Blackbird. Cropped fairly close, but I hope it works.

Mike and David note the single leg/foot in these. Many raptors do this, maybe all I don't know. The second pic you can see the other talon sticking out of the belly feathers. I have seen Crested caracara do it also.

Possible, and probable explanation. I looked at other shots of this same owl and noticed the same leg missing, but maybe it just likes to always tuck that one up ?
Nice shots Will and thanks.

All remarkably nice shots Bill. I have seen raptors, and other birds stand on one foot many times. It appears as though they only have one leg (but they have two). However, David mentioned that it was a one legged owl, so I'm assuming that he actually knew that for a fact.

This guy looks like a one legged snowy, but he's not.

OK, now those are both great shots. How in the world did that snowy egret get his left leg backwards? Oh I know...he's double jointed.
I love the second shot. What great colors!

No.

But most will disclose if it was a captive bird.

ok, thanks. I was asking, because I thought someone in here might be able to answer a question for me about a Bald Eagle...
This one is in captivity, rehabilitation after being rescued...I don't know what the whole story was...and in person I thought he looked dirty...like he had been playing in the mud! But on screen, it looks more like a juvenile that is transitioning into the white head...and I thought it was a really pretty bird, I have never been so close to one...

The young have fledged and they finally came back to show them the mealworm station and the bubbler.
