Birds at Gordale

The Gordale Nursery Fun Day last weekend included a display of birds of prey.

Barn Owl (Tyto alba)

Spotted Eagle Owl (Bubo africanus)

Southern White-faced Owl  (Ptilopsis granti)

 Common Kestrel  (Falco tinnunculus)

A crossbred Falcon (a cross between a Peregrine and Barbary Falcon)


  1. The pictures of the owls are absolutely beautiful. The barn owl especially -- its feathers look as if they are painted on. You really do take the most amazing photos. Thanks for another wonderful post.

  2. Whenever I see a photo of an owl, I re-experience the first bird I ever spotted during an official field trip out birding. I thought the owl was debris that had gotten lodged in a tree until I was told to look through my binoculars and realized I was looking at a majestic bird!
