Moments to treasure
Ce mandru este , si merita
Thank you Vincent
Wonderful to see the close up detail and those barred chest feathers. I’m learning to identify raptors, think we get the same species here, going to check it out….
Hi Liz. Thanks for commenting. I would be interested to know if you do a have the same species.
Hi Joyce, i found two similar species – the rufous breasted – 30 -38 cm and the Little Sparrohawk -23 -27cm. The former looks very much like the one in your photo – chestnut coloured barring on the breast. A very handsome bird 🙂
That is interesting Liz. This is a link to my breed of bird. http://blx1.bto.org/birdfacts/results/bob2690.htm
Thanks for the info. It interesting to see their area of distribution – specially up into Scandinavia… higher latitudes.
Very! A very intense bird when you see him capturing his prey. I have a bird feeder with a cage over it to keep the squirrels out but a sparrowhawk literally dragged a poor blue tit out of it on more than one occasion.
