Yesterday we had an exotic visitor, a predator bird! Don't know which kind, couldn't find out. But it was very beatiful. Guess he was wondering what all the fuzz was about with the bird feeding station with deers, squirrels, rats, doves and other birds :)

(this time I used Topaz DeNoise AI to get decent results from the ISO 3200 pics, works great!)

I'm guessing a Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) but I have been known to be wrong before - many times :-( - so wait for someone more experienced to make an ID.

Danny, rats are vermin and should be shot with an air rifle, not a camera. 😁
Nice pic of the raptor. That’s a beaut!

A male cardinal landed close to me for a photoshoot. I had more than this, but these were my favorites.

I'm not normally that fond of ducks and don't, as a rule, photograph them. But I thought it strange that this duck had such cute ducklings. Just before I took this shot, a seagul swooped in and ate one of the ducklings. There were three, and I guess at some point there were several more because the mother seemed unperturbed at losing a duckling like that. If my lens wasn't so old and slow to focus I might have gotten that shot. Instead, I just have this strange looking duck with two ducklings and who knows how long they will live.
