The place to share your pictures of birds!

It is like bird watching, only on Reddit.

Submit some pictures of birds! :>

SOME RULES

1.) Users must have at least 5 comment karma to submit here. (it's easy to do if you comment on a few submissions here every so often)

2.) Titles that such as Beautiful Bird will catch the spam filter. *Message the moderators if you submission doesn't pass because of the title/ avoid using vague titles.

3.) This sub is more interested in your OC (original content) than whatever you can find on Google. If you snap a photo, share it here! Please don't share others images unless you credit them in the title/ comments.

We discourage baiting of birds (through bird calls) to get photos as this may disrupt their natural mating patterns.


*If you can't see your submission under the 'new' tab, please message the mods and we'll get it out the spam filter for you! Sorry for any delays, we want to deliver you the best content by real users.

Falcon

https://preview.redd.it/zepivxx19oxa1.jpg?width=5289&format=pjpg&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=b349975611216653619a53f44d262762bd4fd0b0

Falcons are some of the most impressive birds of prey in the world, known for their incredible speed, agility, and hunting abilities.

Falcons boast some of the best attributes of any bird out there, shown by how well they capture their prey and survive in their habitats.

First and foremost, falcons are incredibly fast. They can reach speeds of up to 200 miles per hour when diving to catch prey, making them the fastest animals on the planet.

This incredible speed is due to the unique shape of their wings, which are long and pointed, allowing them to slice through the air with minimal resistance. In addition to their speed, falcons are also incredibly agile, able to make sharp turns and quick movements in mid-air to catch their prey.

When it comes to capturing prey, falcons have a few different strategies depending on the type of prey they're targeting.

For smaller prey like songbirds or rodents, falcons will often hunt by swooping down from above and catching their prey in their sharp talons.

For larger prey like ducks or other birds, falcons will often use a different tactic known as the ""stoop,"" where they dive from high in the air and strike their prey with incredible force.

One of the things that make falcons so effective at hunting is their incredible eyesight. Falcons have some of the best vision of any animal, with the ability to see prey from great distances and track it with incredible precision. Their eyes are also adapted to see in bright sunlight, which is why they're often seen hunting during the day.

Despite their impressive hunting abilities, falcons still have to contend with predators in their natural environments.

Some of the most common predators of falcons include larger birds of prey like eagles and hawks, as well as mammals like foxes and coyotes. To survive against these predators, falcons have a few different strategies.

One is to simply avoid them by hunting in areas that are less likely to be frequented by predators. Another is to use their speed and agility to outmaneuver predators in mid-air, making it difficult for them to catch the falcon.

Aside from their hunting and survival abilities, falcons are also some of the most majestic birds in the world. Their sleek, streamlined bodies and striking coloring make them a favorite of birdwatchers and photographers alike. Falcons are also highly intelligent and can be trained to hunt alongside humans, a practice that has been used for centuries in cultures around the world.

Overall, falcons are truly amazing creatures with a set of unique attributes that make them one of the most impressive birds of prey in the world.

Their incredible speed and agility, combined with their sharp eyesight and hunting instincts, make them incredibly effective at capturing prey and surviving in their natural environments.

And of course, their stunning beauty and majesty make them a true wonder of the natural world.

When I look at this Falcon print on my wall, I am reminded of the majestic and graceful nature of these birds of prey.
