Accipiter nisus - female

Lo sparviere è un grande cacciatore di uccelli. È il più piccolo rapace diurno nidificante in Italia.
E’ distribuito in tutta Europa; al Nord migra parzialmente; a sud è residente. Lunghezza : circa 33 cm ; la femmina è più grande e pesante del maschio (dimorfismo sessuale) . Apertura alare: fino 70 cm. Peso: 150-380 g . Il corpo è slanciato; il piumaggio superiormente è grigio-bruno (giovani), grigio-bruno (femmine) o grigio-bluastro (maschi); inferiormente biancastro, con barrature trasversali grigio-brune (femmine), biancastro, in parte rosso-ruggine o rosso-bruno con barrature (maschi) o biancastro con macchie e/o striature allungate verticalmente (giovani). Il becco è grigio-bluastro con base chiara e cera gialla. La testa è relativamente piccola, scura, con sopracciglio chiaro (più evidente nella femmina adulta); occhi arancione nel maschio e gialli nella femmina.
La coda è lunga, biancastra, barrata di grigio. Le zampe sono lunghe, gialle, con unghie nere. Ha abitudini prevalentemente diurne-crepuscolari, solitarie.
Vive in are boscose in genere non troppo fitte e con limitrofe radure e zone aperte.
Alimentazione: soprattutto uccelli, secondariamente micromammiferi. Biologia: Si riproduce da maggio ad agosto. I nidi si trovano generalmente sugli alberi. Depone 2-7 uova biancastre con macchie bruno-rossicce; il periodo di incubazione dura circa 30 giorni (una covata all'anno). La prole è nidicola e s'invola a circa 4 settimane.
LA FOTO: la foto è stata scattata da capanno con il nikkor AFS 300 f4 + Kenko 1,4, con cavalletto e scatto remoto; f 5,6 ; 1/400 s ; ISO 200; distanza di circa 8 metri

Bonsoir Enrico, magnifique ce shot d'Epervier d'Europe et quel regard, cela glace le sang!! le focus est parfait et les teintes se marient bien. Bonne soirée, Didier.

Hi Enrico,

The tree is helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Eurasian Sparrowhawk. The quality of the light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Enrico,
great capture of this Eurasian Sparrowhawk with a well chosen frontal POV and good sharpness. I also like the beautiful natural colours, especially the yellow eyes look incredible. If the bird have looked you in the camera it just would have been a perfect shot, but it is anyway a lovely picture.
Best wishes,
Helmut
