I am traveling again so because I am short on time to do up posts that will publish while I am away I thought I would do a sort of “throwback” to old posts that some of you might not have seen.

Today I am focusing on older posts that have raptors in them starting with Prairie Falcons:

I have to tell you it feels totally awesome to watch a Prairie Falcon attack, bring in and eat the prey it caught naturally. These birds are simply amazing.

Juvenile Swainson

An adult Swainson’s Hawk and its young in Montana

I’d also seen that adult Swainson’s Hawk in the same area before and it always seemed to be calling so I took my eyes off of the adult bird and scanned the area carefully and was pleased when I noticed these two juvenile Swainson’s on and near the nest.

These images of a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk were taken on Sunday morning, June 22nd while leaving southwestern Montana to head back to Utah. Normally I don’t want to leave Montana but this time I really hated to go.

Bald Eagles – Age Progression from one to five years old

Over the past week or so I have been photographing quite a few wintering Bald Eagles of various ages, from one year olds to adults, and I decided to write about the differences in plumage.

I hope that you enjoy these raptor posts from the past.
