The coloration on the Brown Hawk is beautiful.

Oh my goodness! such lovely birds! The Pesquet's Parrott, aka the Devil Parrott or the Vulture Parrott looks like it could tear meat off the  bones of a mighty beast! The photo of the Pheasant, just before his beak touches the water, is a remarkably timed photo. The Brown hawk in snow has beautiful coloring ... they all do. What a nice treat! Thanks Tony.
