What’s Up With the Birds

I have been fascinated with birds of all types, so you will see images of birds on this aviation website, as we have to remember they were here first and always show us how it’s done. The image in the header is Harfang des neiges. We relate to this bird as Snowy Owl. It’s a superb bird of prey and it’s presentation of aerodynamic features is significant. 

I will gave other images of birds, mostly in flight sprinkled throughout the blog and I will try to comment on them for interests sake, perhaps to point out specifics that I find interesting, but mostly for their grace and beauty.
