Raptors, Owls, Doves, Grouse, and Allies
OF WESTERN NORTH AMERICA


Composites of American Kestrel and Red-tailed Hawk in filght.

The following page is devoted to some of my photographs of RAPTORS, OWLS, DOVES, GROUSE, AND THEIR ALLIES.

(Most of the birds on this page were photographed in Washington or British Columbia, and a few perhaps from my travels around the western United States. However, I have many other bird photos that are not on this page, from AN AMAZING BIRDING ROADTRIP through several birding hotspots across the country I embarked on in Spring 2008.)
