European Greenfinch VS Sparrowhawk

Passeriformes – Fringillidae – For a few days I have observed, from the corner of my eye a fairly large bird flying swiftly over and around my tent and above the feeding table making the passerine birds quite nervous.

Noushka

Passionate about Nature and photography but mostly animals and birds. I live in France at the present, but have lived in Africa for 16 years and in the U.S. for 3 years and with Australia in mind for the future. With my husband, I created and managed a Bird Park in South Africa, raising mainly psittacines; the breeding facility housed over 1000 parrots at any given time. My photography is about sharing fauna's beauty with other enthusiasts! Equipment: NIKON lenses: 300 mm F/4, 80/400 mm, 500 mm, 200/500 mm, 800 mm f5/6E,

Common Buzzard

Buteo buteo – Accipitridae – Accipitriformes – Buse variable I am wondering if the underparts’ white patches remain the same after each moult or does the pattern change somewhat? I have realised that the converter slows down somewhat the focusing speed, but I am quite happy to have succeed to achieve a decent pic here: […]

Red kite

Milvus milvus Accipitriformes – Accipitridae The pics here are not re-framed: he is about 9 meters from the mirador. I grab my 300 mm lens and I jump to another opening. The fellow does not notice it coming out, his attention is kept on other birds of prey. That is the closest I can ever […]

Red Kite

Milvus milvus – Accipitridae – Accipitriformes One of the few winterers in our area, south of France. We have set up a feeding station for these birds since last year’s cold spell in Febuary. Indeed for 3 weeks, temperatures had plummeted to -15 and unfortunately, many species of birds were decimated. We managed to help […]

European Goldfinch, males

Carduelis carduelis – Passeriformes – Fringillidae. This is the bird that started my passion for birding when I was a kid! I have hand raised a number of Goldfinches but one in particular was very special. He would go to his cage only to sleep and nibble seeds, otherwise he was always with one of […]
