Beautiful birds, and great shots as well. Those jokers will make you crap your pants if you’re ever up in a tree and they take flight towards you.

Not sure why anyone would or wouldn't know raptors and most birds are illegal to shoot without regs.

Great pics of awesome birds. Owls always look like they know more about things than I do. And when it comes to making a living in the woods, they sure do.

Awesome birds and pics! Had one land in the back yard tree once and was debating very hard on wether or not to try to grab my 60 pound dog or not! Biggest bird I’ve ever seen!
