For birds this week I decided to start with some game birds from Europe.
|Switzerland - Alectoris graeca - Rock Partridge|
The Ring-necked Pheasant occurs in many countries, including -
|Yugoslavia - Phasianus colchicus|
I just wonder whether a bird of prey used for sport would take one of those.
|UAE - Falcon (issued 07/04/2013)|
Finally two birds from South Africa.
|South Africa - Bokmakierie and Bateleur|
The Bokmakierie (Maiaconotus zeylonus) is a large yellow bushshrike. As you may be able to tell from its beak the Bateleur (Tetrathorpius ecaudatus) is an eagle.
