Today we have three lovely bird photos from readers (click photos to enlarge):
Mal sent me this aerodynamic picture of a flying rook (Corvus frugilegus):
It’s a swell picture on its own, but Mal sent it because he thought it resembled a “UFO” sighting recently in North Devon:
And reader Tom sent a picture that he called it “let us prey.” Indeed, the bird looks like it’s saying a preprandial grace. I didn’t get a reply when I asked him what the bird was, what the prey was, or if the prey was already dead when the bird found it (I suspect not). Perhaps other readers can help out here.
Finally, reader Paul sent a picture of a bald eagle in a residential neighborhood, with the note:
I took the attached picture of a Bald Eagle yesterday in Viera, Florida. I have seen Bald Eagles before in that area, but never this close up and low to the ground.I was fortunate that this majestic bird waited long enough for me to park my car and allowed me to come fairly close (of course, I’d left my telephoto at home).
