This lamp-post is occupied daily by the Kestrel , the same one who's pic. posted on TE July 19th'10 .
I had learnt already, it has a very sharp-eyes vision, and on mornings, every 15 – 20 minutes it is charging , grabs and actually robs other bird's catch , mostly worms – than makes a wide circle on air, a 50 to 70 meters in diameter , returning to the very same lamp-post. When in flight – it's tail has 8 separate feathers, 2 hanks of 4 , acting as stabilizers , see that on this WS posted .
Stunning sight, on a very unusual bird , not common in my neighborhood.
*** Another POV on TN.

It seems that these birds like the streetlights, it is certainly a good observation and it seems that is what he does.
Great time with good definition and color.
Havea nice weekend. Best regards.

Hello my dear Ike
Well considered(intentionally ?) balanced framework and organized composition as usual. The shape of bird and lump are syncronized very well. Blessing on your finest work, thanks for sharing and have a good Saturday night! Best regards, Takero

a charming shot of lovely kestrel,
its posture, colors and especially eye are very pretty,
the curve lines of the lamp are just fit its figure,
thank you for your wonderful capturing,

Well captured a small winged predators at the top of street lamps. My guess is that it was not easy to do this picture. I like it..
ערב טוב. "כבשו לחלוטין טורפים מכונפים קטן בחלק העליון של פנסי הרחוב. הניחוש שלי הוא שזה לא היה קל לעשות את התמונה הזאת. אני אוהב את זה. בברכה

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the krestel. The bird is clear and precise. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike, Yes, you really are a birder. Bet you post bird shots on the other Trek forum. I like them too. I think this is a great shot of this kestrel. My congratualtios to you for the great inflight shot of this bird in your workshop. That shot makes the bird look larger than the one pictured here. What genre is this a part of? I don't think we have them here. Sharp shot, but I would like to see it even closer. Good effort. Regards, Roger

I liked the sharpness here, it is perfect. we can see each detail. The color of the background, the fabulous light and the shape as the lamp created a beautiful mood.
Nice composition, very quiet picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice sunday,

A bird of prey perched on a lamp post, reading "the morning news" left by pigeons is quite an unusual view indeed!

A beautiful Kestrel. The building behind is a
nice egale background. Composition is very
good and the lower position makes the Kestrel
extra tough and the picture extra exciting.
Cricri (123700) 2014-08-17 21:28
Une belle approche ici, la position, la netteté et les couleurs sont en bel harmonie, la note est trčs intéressante, ainsi que les miens, merci

It's a cute bird, looks like it's on the bow of a boat.
80 % humidity sounds high for the Mediterranean, I would have jumped in the sea.
