This is Poplar, a red kite at the Feathers and Fur falconry centre.

Otis, the centre's Common Buzzard was being very vocal this morning!

A quick flap of the wings....

djnana These are the best "bird shots" I've seen on PB - so crystal clear and perfectly detailed! I have a love affair with birds of prey, especially hawks - they are so magnificent predators! (Did you see Larry's red-tailed hawk in his recent post - it lives across the street, but I never get a decent photo!)

alison Wow - stunning. My friend Cathy is an expert on Red Kites and always seems to be on the television and radio talking about them, she's quoted in this article too.
