These birds are primarily dark coloured. By the time they are 4 or 5 years old, they will develop a distinctive white head and tail feathers. The adults also have a large yellow beak.

Juveniles often have white mottling, especially under their wings.

When seen soaring, these birds hold their wings horizontally flat and at a ninety degree angle to their bodies.

Taken at the Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale, Alberta, Canada.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
