Marsh Harrier (Cyrcus aeruginosus)
Falco di palude.

Carrion Crow (Corvus corone cornix)
Cornacchia grigia.

In cleptoparassitismo su Falco di palude.

La preda era verosimilmente un cucciolo di lepre.

Hy Angelo
I saw many times this behaviour. Not with a marsh harrier, but with a common buzzard. The crows are numerous, and poor bird of prey is without any hope. Well done!

Excellent shot. The crows have won- the prey has been released and is falling. The different wing positions of the crows and their wingtip feather spreading are very nice.


Ottimo scatto e ben inquadrato; complimenti!

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele
