Island Birds

A few more birds from down south.....

The Striated Caracara, a really interesting raptor that seems to fill a similar niches to both an eagle and a vulture. These are from the Falklands.





Upland Geese, also from the Falklands

Male (left) and female




Gentoo Penguins from Port Lockroy, Antarctica





The Imperial Cormorant (or Blue-eyed Shag) also taken at Port Lockroy






(The light was miserable for the whole time we were at Port Lockroy - actually I think it's overcast there most of the time!)

Thanks for looking!

Re: Island Birds

Another fabulous set.
I absolutely adore number 5 - that is such a great capture.

How many memory cards did you fill up on your travels? I hope you are going to get them all printed - they would make an awesome photobook.

Re: Island Birds

Fab images, but the Caracara and Cormorant shots are excellent
