Big Birds - Up Close

I think that's the best thing about Florida - Big Birds, Up Close.  Pretty easy to photograph if, and I mean IF, you aren't in a boat rocking back and forth.  Here are some shots that we got today at Alligator Creek Preserve:

 Black Vulture

 Red-shouldered Hawk - I think this is a pretty good photo

Broad-winged Hawk - check out his leg coming out of his belly.  He dove down and got a frog but those photos didn't come out.

Here are some from the boat in Charlotte Bay this afternoon:


 It seemed like there was an Osprey on every channel marker (especially the red ones)


Double-crested Cormorant - we like his green/blue eye
Royal Tern shuffling his feathers

...I love those Florida birds too! The Red-shouldered Hawk photo is cool. I enlarged it to see the detail, and I love the look in his eyes and the posture you captured.

Thanks for the comment. Lucky shot to get that pose, for sure.

These birds are the most wonderful part of the nature to see at every place which is worth of being praising. I am amazed to know so many new things about these species of birds.
