Bird of prey

When I first spotted this handsome raptor, he was balancing on the power line leading to my house, with a small bird in his talons.

By the time I ran to get my camera, he was just ready to fly away.

Does anyone know his species?

  1. Those PhD (Push here Dummy) cameras can surprise us with the results. They’re a far cry from the Kodak Brownies.

    So gorgeous!
    Several years ago I was watching a bird coming towards my window. As you know with the expansive view I get lots of bird sightings….crows, gulls etc. But this one was different and as it got closer I realized it was a bald eagle! It sailed right past my window. I was so in awe that I didn’t even think of grabbing a camera…although mine now lives here on the table.
    Sorry, I can’t help with the identification.
    Great shot, Yvonne!
