best photo by far in the competition, ridiculous it's third
nonsense the osprey was far better
I've retracted that as you obviously can't read as this same photois in birds in the sky where it clearly states no photos from previous challenges!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is still in the appropriate nickname challenge
no captive or temporarily captivated wildlife
if you had titled the photo a blizzard of snow geese it would be appropriate to the entry requirements and I personally would have scored you much higher
Most of the entrants here are from the US as evident by their subject matter a killdeer for example is not doing that.
Various other entries clearly have not read the info properly.
just when i think i have a shot to compete with the challenge, I find this...
If you were British you would have included the crown above, it would then resemble the Queen's head on our stamps.
It is called a Griffon Vulture, one of three species they have there black and egyptian being the others
Beppone: Hi there!
Nice shot and I really love these birds.
The Picture itself is a bit unsharp and shows lots of CAs.
BUT: The shown birds are no black terns.You shot a nice flock of SANDWICH TERNS (Sterna sandvicensis).
There was the odd sandwich tern with them, and some within the much larger flock still had dark breasts but the majority were winter plumage black terns in my opinion, no white tip to the bill and when scrutinised with my telescope and visible were three pronged black cap, grey shoulder and outer primary patches, plus the grey outer edges to underwing as opposed to clean of the sandwich
Have you noticed the pintail drake in there also!
A lot better than my lesser whitethroat, and lot better lens i think.But a great shot of a truely wild bird, no jessies, cages or enclosures!!!!
try looking in a field guide
on the hunt...in a cage
nice to see a genuine owl shot unlike a good proportion of photos in this challenge, but hey it didn't say best WILD bird shot in the title, pitty.
