Raptors and others

“Birds of prey, also known as raptors, hunt and feed on other animals. These birds are characterised by keen vision that allows them to detect prey during flight and powerful talons and beaks.” I couldn’t fit the talons in, but here are the sharp beaks and keen eyes of an Osprey, a Honey Buzzard, a Goshawk and a Marsh Harrier, all in Bristol Museum, and all stuffed. Then some museum visitors, less keen-eyed, and mostly in thrall to their phones.
