Amazing wildlife photography!

Curious about the bird that looks like an owl. Do you know the species and what it has in its left talons?

Thank you Robert, I appreciate the comment.

The owl is a Blakistons Fish Owl. One of the largest Owls in the world. World population is estimated to be less then 400 birds.

He has a small fish in his talon.

This is a known wild bird that on occasion visit a hotel feeder. it is male, and his left eye is damaged.

Another photo is attached

Fascinating. And thank you for the added post/image.

For those interested, here is a google of the endangered Blakistons Fish Owl on ebird.

Bob..
These are amazing. I am super jealous of your eagle interactions. Were you shooting these from a boat or the jetty? I spent 3 mornings on a boat, but was socked in by sea ice for 2 of the 3 days... there was no way I could handle my 400 f2.8TC from the boat...

Also, fantastic job with the snow monkey coming down the hill... wonderful expression and gorgeous light.

These are a great mix of great shots of some spectacular birds. Like others the aerial shots are really nice. Neat to see the fish owl, a shame about the eye there arenít many of them.

Fantastic set - the eagles fighting over fish are incredible! I want to go there for powder skiing someday, now I have to pack my camera gear too! Where did you find the birds?
