Eagles, Hawks, Owls, Vultures and more. Birds of prey. The names bring to mind images of exotic birds that swoop out of the sky to capture their victims. Birds of prey typically live in more remote or rural areas so most people have never seen one outside of a zoo. I truly love to capture images of birds of prey in the wild, or in captivity, and I hope this gallery will introduce you to the beauty of this category of birds.
The last "image" in this gallery is an all black thumbnail that leads to a 3 minute video of birds of prey. You must click on the thumbnail to start the show. The music makes it work so please have your sound on from the start.
The American Bald Eagle is one of my absolute favorite birds of prey and they have their own gallery and place in my heart.
