Photos  

I love to take pictures. I love to photograph birds in flight. Yesterday, I saw this bird up on my chimney cap eating something off of it. I have no idea what kind of bird it is. If anyone has an idea, let me know. It is not a turkey vulture. Anyway, I managed to catch this bird as it was taking off. It is not a very good looking bird. In fact, I think it is a bit of a scary-looking bird with its red eye.

Here are the photos:

Here's the bird eating.






Look at its red eyes.

And here's what a turkey vulture looks like:

Magnificent:



This is a seagull in flight (unfortunately, I didn't have my big telephoto lens with me when I took the photo):

Thanks to a friend from Facebook. I found out that the bird is a type of falcon:

I could have told you that...

I thought that you'd know what kind of bird it was, Rick. I was totally shocked that this FB friend was able to identify it.
