Bit of a long shot, but it was interesting to watch this male Northern Harrier, diving on the Snowy Owl.

Oh that's a shame.. How about a Redshank, I have plenty to spare :)

I sure appreciate that, but I have more redshanks than I know what to do with.:lol:

Thanks, LD. You are right, it was an American Wigeon. It must have been injured as it made no attempt to escape.

I'd bet you're right about it being injured. The waterfowl hunting season ended in early February and it's quite likely it was a leftover cripple from a gunner.

I have seen them in Caribbean Waters, while on a cruise ship. They were flying into about 40MPH head wind. The minute they turned towards the back of the ship, there was no way for me to track them, just so fast. They follow the ship and dive into the water of the wake of the ship, to do a little fishing. After about an hour I had enough, but they kept following the ship. Amazing Pelagic Birds.

I very much like this particular shot in your series...because of the eye contact with the eagle. obviously the wigeon did not go to waste, even if it was wounded by a hunter.

Very cool shot, Dave! I find it interesting that a harrier would horas a snowy owl. I can't ever remember seeing a harrier horas a hawk or an owl before. Guess I need to get out more.:lol:

Outstanding shot, Ed! Looks great against the snowy scene.

Nice capture of dove's colors, smooth contrasting background, and super sharp. Very nice.

I really appreciate your encouraging comment, EB. Thank you kindly.

I was watching this Great Grey hunt a field for voles when his presence was discovered by a passing murder of crows. After he had enough of being dive bombed he took off and flew towards me- I even managed to capture one of the offending crows in the first shot

This is just a stunning photo all around! Tells a story just by looking at it, 4 different species of birds all sharp and in focus, beautiful bokeh. Fantastic job!
