I'm always amazed of you Buzzard photos Sid, so amazingly sharp!

Thanks Jose, the proximity is the key to that, the perched birds are 22m at the farthest and about 10m at the closest.
For example, this is an un cropped shot from this afternoon at about 10m.

cheers! :)

It's pretty astounding they let you get this close. We have Red-Tailed Hawks that are resident in our local park that are very comfortable around people but I don't think they would let me get that close for sure. Nevertheless this series of Buzzard shots are really fantastic

Eurasian black vulture, the largest of the old world vultures, captured in North Easter Portugal this summer.

I know, and then it flew towards me! This juvenile is the only one to have perched this close for more than a second or two, I will miss it when it does disappear of into the wide world to find it's own space.

I'm sat in a hide with an open window so they know where I am, if I'm out in the open the adult male will come to the 22m perch to grab food but won't stay there and the female rarely comes closer than 50m. This juvenile has performed spectacularly for me over the last few weeks, I'm lucky to have this all at home but it has taken 3 ish years to get to this point :)
Thanks!

Amazing shots, your not Pondradar in disguise? Only way I get closer is with the everyday garden birds like these sparrows(and even than in a hide).

LOL Quite weird how he suddenly disappeared. I wonder where he hangs out now.

Lovely shots of the sparrows, Patrick.

A great portrait, Jose. Looks like you were very close. Were you in a blind?

Yes I was in a blind. I've seen them pretty close sometimes on the mountain cliffs of rivers but usually when they are flying along the cliff faces.

Thanks and no, although he did inspire me to do better and provided encouragement along the way, it's a shame he no longer posts. I'm lucky to have such variety on my door step currently. :)

Thanks. There are many opportunities to photograph raptors in my small town, they nest in the Cliff faces of the river Douro. Griffons are very common, we also get Golden and Bonelli's Eagles, Peregrines and a few other species in the area. It's a pretty remote area located on the border of Spain and Portugal.
