snapshots from the backyard and beyond
Wow, wow and just Wow! Great sightings to start with and beautiful photos to boot. Some divine lighting. I assume you enjoyed the day!?
The yellow-eyed raptor in the third image is a striking bird (& great capture). ID? I'm not used to thinking of Swamp harrier as that handsome but the white rump ....
thanks Pete, the day was awesome with raptors everywhere. You are correct, it is a swamp harrier. I think the chocolate colour makes it a younger bird.
