Welcome to Week #46 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #46 challenge is birds perched up on anything.
Accipitridae, meaning small to large birds with strongly hooked bills, includes hawks, eagles, vultures, harriers and kites.
Week #9 challenge was Birds of Prey. Fabulous selections from all over the world by our bloggers this week with their osprey, hawks, eagles, vultures, buzzards, owls, kites, goshawks, harriers & falcons.
Birds of Prey or raptors include species of birds that primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large relative to the hunter. They have a keen eyesight to find and capture their food, often while flying high in the sky. They have strong talons for grasping and killing their prey and also have strong curved beaks to tear their food apart.
