Photos from 03/19/11 – Birds of Prey Event

Great Horned Owl

On Saturday morning, I got an intimate look at six raptors courtesy of Bill Streeter of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center and Scenic Hudson.

The raptors shown were an american kestrel, a peregrine falcon, a red-tailed hawk, a great horned owl, a northern saw-whet owl, and a golden eagle.  Thankfully, I was able to put together a gallery despite the unfavorable camera conditions.  I hope you like them!

  4. Kudos–especially under the conditions: dark in the tent, freezing cold, and the presenter, good though he was, constantly spinning himself and the bird, just as one got a bead on the bird’s pose. Yours are beautiful–thanks for posting.

    Extraordinary photos. Isn’t it amazing, the juxtaposition between the tiny and the huge predators – all of them breathtaking and all deadly in their own right. Simply gorgeous. Thanks for posting them.

    What great photos!

    I have always enjoyed hearing Bill Streeter talk about his birds. We had him come to do a presentation for our cub scout pack at Winding Hills Park in Montgomery in 2002. My son asked him what he did with the owl pellets and he reached in the cage and gave them to him. My son still talks about that.
