Long-Eared Owl!!!! This is my first photo of one and I was so excited!! .. .. This year I have seen Long-eared Owls flying and hunting in formation once the sun goes down. Many times I have waited patiently hoping one would land but never had any luck. .. .. Last night I saw one fly by at a distance but no others. So I was 5 mins from heading to my car when I spot one land on this perch!! I was not close to him but I started take pics anyway, this was my chance!! .. .. Once I gained a little composure I moved closer but not too close as I didn’t want to spook him. I didn’t but a couple others (who were close to him to begin with!) had to get even closer and the Long-eared took off 😩. .. .. Composition was what it was, I only had a couple mins to try take these shots and move without disturbing him. I was literally on eggshells afraid that he would take off at any moment 😝 .. .. Taken a few mins before 6pm so it was very dark - 1/20 sec, F5.6, ISO 16000, 500mm .. .. .. #nikonphotography #nikon #nikon_photography #nikonusa #wildlifephotography   #raw_community_member #birdsofinstagram #birds #natgeo #intobirds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #nuts_about_birds #bb_of_ig #birding #birds_adored #kings_birds #eye_spy_birds #animal_sultans #bird_captures #audubonsociety #nature_cuties #birds_private #birds_illife #feather_perfection #elite_raptors #owl #longearedowl #owlsofinstagram at Connecticut

I love juvenile Red-Tailed Hawks. It has been quite a while since I have encountered one and yesterday I had the pleasure of spotting two of them. They were both along well traveled walking paths and as I went to pass them I was certain they would fly off, but neither did. Here is a nice close photo of one of them - I left him perched and relaxed :) #redtailedhawk #hawk #hawksofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #instagood #dailybirdpic #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #elite_raptors #raptors #birdstagram #birding #birds #rhodeislandphotographer #newengland

Went on an early morning walk, the snow was hard and crunching loudly under my boots. I said to myself there's no way I'm seeing anything cool this morning, I'm scaring them all away. I stood there for a moment watching the sun come up over the trees and out of the corner of my eye I saw something fly into a tree I was standing next to - great horned owl! This will probably never happen to me again! . . #nature #wildlife #birds #greathornedowl #owl #owlsofinstagram #iloveowls #birdoftheday #birdofprey #masswildlife #naturalmassachusetts #elite_raptors #masswildlifecollective #lucky #love #earlymorningwalk #winter #winterinnewengland #explore #travel #Instagram #photography #forest at Massachusetts

A red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) #floating down to the earth below in search of a meal. New York. October 2018. . This photo takes place a few seconds before the photograph posted 12 posts back. . #Factoid: the number one predator of #RedTailedHawks is... other #RedTails! For this reason during breeding season the #birds will make a number of false nests and even spend time visiting them to distract other #hawks from the real nest. . . Thank you so, so much for stopping and looking at my work. ❤️ Also, don’t forget to check out my GIVEAWAY post (three posts earlier)! You have until Monday at 4:00 PM CT. . . . #Wildlife #Nature #Animals #Bird at New York

The wings of a vulture are perfectly adapted for soaring effortlessly on thermals. With barely a flap, they can cover huge distances as they search the landscape for carcasses to feed on. 🍽 . Vultures are the most specialized and efficient scavengers on the planet, able to consume and break down flesh infested with the deadliest viruses and bacteria! 💀 This is a major reason why they are so important to our ecosystems. They prevent the spread of lethal diseases and so keep the environment healthy. 👨‍⚕️ . India's government lost billions of dollars in healthcare costs when their vulture populations crashed to almost zero at the end of the 20th century! 🤒 . In this photo .. an African White-backed Vulture soars above the Athi Plains, Kenya. .

This is a beautiful Red Tailed Hawk who was curiously watching two Sandhill Cranes rummaging around under the tree he was sitting in.

Ain't no rain gonna stop this Red-shouldered Hawk from hunting. When I first happened upon this hawk he was perched up on a pole with the bleak white/gray background of the sky behind him. I knew if I waited long enough he would fly down in search of prey. And that’s what he did, landing on this fence. I slowed down the shutter speed enough to capture the fallen rain drops. I don’t know what was off in the distance to give the background a patterned look. I have come to really appreciate the deep rusty color of the Red-shouldered Hawk. How about you? It seems to contrast well in this photo. . #wildlife_inspired #bestbirdshots #pocket_birds #eye_spy_birds #king_birds #bird #wildlife #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #your_best_birds #bns_birds #birdphotography #wildlife #bird_brilliance #waycoolshots #nikonphotography #feather_perfection #audubon #your_best_birds #bestnatureshots #ip_connect #wildlife_in_bl #eye_for_earth #inspirenaturenow #elite_raptors #only_raptors #best_birds_of_ig #planetuntamed

Ferruginous Hawk, with an almost 360 degrees head turn from the views of the mountains towards us( the noise... 😩) that was taking the peace of it's mind. As I was in my car, the raptor was checking both me and my car...and I don't know is it only me...I always feel that when any raptor gives that head on look, they appear squinted to me all the time, lol...do you think that, too??? 😄 Happy Saturday and out we go in the six inch snow from overnight.....c-o-o-l-l-l-d-d-d-d!!!!!! . . . #elite_raptors #elite_feathered_wings #feather_perfection #birdsonearth #igs_birds #nature_spotlight #tnhusa #explore_wildlife #wwap_member #raw_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #world_beautiful_photos #total_fauna #trb_rural #birds_illife #1natureshot #1birdshot #marvelouz_animals #nuts_about_wildlife #nature_shooters #gn_photos #world_bestanimal #ba_members #onceupon_the_earth #ptk_birds_animals #everything_animals #hey_ihadtosnapthat #country_features #raw_allanimals @your_best_birds @planetbirds @planetoutside @tv_fauna @wildlife_inspired @bob.s.taylor @wildlifeplanet @wildlifeonearth @_epic_wildlife_ @inspire_nature_now @intobirds @canonusa @wildloverig @live_love_wildlife @birdsofgilligallou at Rocky Mountain Arsenal

That look back when the guy with the dog walked on the path behind me. She had been looking ahead but when the four legged creature walked by her head shot back quickly to keep an eye on it. at United States

Too spooky outside to go find the red tails. From a few weeks ago. The white on the chest looks like a hawk spreading its wings 🧐 #only_raptors #elite_raptors #feather_perfection at Richmond, Virginia

Lesser Kestrel | Male The Lesser Kestrel frequents dry, warm, semi-desert areas and steppes with scattered vegetation, pastures and cultivated fields. This species is usually found in flat or undulating lowlands, but it often breeds at 1500 metres of elevation in Asia. #AnimalElite #animal_sultans #your_best_shots #bird_brilliance #birds_illife #earthfocus #wildlifeplanet @natgeowild #ourplanetdaily #winterwatch #birds_private #birdfreaks #EarthCapture #earthtodolist #nuts_about_birds #birds_adored #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #bb_of_ig #naturyst #kings_birds #eye_spy_birds #PlanetBirds #best_birds_of_world #birds_captures #naturelshot #featured_wildlife #indianwildlifeofficial #elite_raptors #natgeowild @natgeocreativee @discovery @BBCEarth at Pune, Maharashtra

Eagle eyed ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The steppe eagle is a large bird of prey that can be found living in steppe habitats, dry grasslands, deserts and mountain ranges across Eastern Europe. It is a strikingly handsome bird with dark brown plumage and matching brown eyes. Its powerful hooked bill is dark grey with a bright yellow cere - that is the waxy fleshy covering at the base of the upper beak - just above its oval shaped nostrils. The steppe eagle is the only species of eagle to have a wide gape, or opening of the mouth, that reaches back beyond its eye. Steppe eagles have been found to travel very long distances, with some flying more than two hundred miles in a single day. They are quiet birds, only vocalising during the breeding season and have the same dietary habits as vultures, with carrion being the foundation of their diets. They are opportunistic scavengers, stealing food from other birds and they often hunt at the entrance to burrows of small mammals, where they wait for them to come out, and then eat them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #steppeeagle #eagle #eagles #eaglesofinstagram #aquila #birdofprey #birdsofprey #birdsofpreyofinstagram #huntingbird #raptor #raptors #raptorbirds #raptorphotography #raptorsofinstagram #only_raptors #_only_raptors #elite_raptors #beakwatch #birdphotography #birdsphotography #bestbirdsofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birds_of_instagram #birdsofinsta #birds_of_ig #nature_sultans #allmightybirds #beautifulbirds #feather_features #wildlife_perfection at Wildwood Escot
