You just don't realise how stunning these beauties are until you see fantastic shots like these. :thumb:
I noticed the Barny was a tame bird, were these taken at a special centre ?
That American Eagle is AWSOME :Wow:
Many thanks for the shots retro, top job. :clap:
All the best

Nice pics. I think your Ringed Plovers are actually Turnstones.
