  1. Gorgeous! We saw two Bataleur Eagles in Boise, ID at the World Center for Birds of Prey a couple of years ago. They were imprinted on people as chicks and cannot be released. They are the most beautiful birds! How neat to see them in their natural habitat!

    • I have two photos of this eagle. I have no idea why I separated the photos. They belong together, but I made that decision in Africa trying to limit the number of photos I post. The eagle landed (no pun intended) on the dirt road in front of us. It was absolutely incredible. He stalked around on the ground a bit and then flew off. I scrambled out of the car, and peeled off two pics. Africa is simply amazing. It hasn’t been a year since we went for the second time and I am already talking to my husband about going back.

  2. Beautiful portraits of these birds, brimming with color and personality! I like the ostrich. I can see all the details in the fine feathers on the head, as well as a good view down the beak! πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Cindy! I am always in awe of your photos! I almost felt I could reach out and tickle that ostrich because of the photo’s clarity (although I hear those crazy birds can be a tad bit temperamental)! Cher xo

  4. I love birds and these are such unique and interesting ones, from the Holler all the way to Africa. I am impressed with the pretty colors and soft feathered details in the ones closer to your home. They stand out, Cindy! πŸ™‚ We may not be “birds of a feather,” but I feel we stick together. ❀
