My favorite thing to photograph are Birds of Prey. In this area you will find Bird of Prey photos, Bird of Prey photo gifts, and Bird of Prey photo prints.

A Bird of Prey is a predatory bird, distinguished by a hooked bill and sharp claws (talons) and belonging to the order Falconiformes (diurnal birds of prey such as hawks, falcons, kites, vultures, and osprey) or Strigiformes (nocturnal birds of prey such as owls) that capture, kill, and eat other animals or feed chiefly on carrion; a raptor. A raptor is a bird of prey. The word raptor comes from the Latin root that means ‘to seize and carry away’ and is assigned to any bird that kills with its feet. Hawks, eagles, falcons, osprey, kites, and owls are all raptors.

There are many types of Birds of Prey, so I have categorized them by type: Eagles (photos of Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles), Osprey (photographs of Osprey), Hawks (Images of Red Shouldered Hawks and Red Tailed Hawks), Vultures (pics of Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures), and Owls (Photo prints of Burrowing Owls, Barred Owls and Eastern Screech Owls).
