European Starling 🐦
"Most people think you need sunshine to take bird images and stay home when it’s cloudy. But it's opposite when you wany to capture this bird : Combined with the flash it allows to control the light much more and get nice even results. This starling is a great example of that. In sunshine the exposure is hard to control on this bird and the colours in the plumage never show as nicely. In sunshine the bird appears a lot more black!"

One of my biggest dreams in my birding life has become true!!!
This monster bird is called the Harpy Eagle... The biggest most powerful bird of prey of America and top 3 in the world!
I've heard stories of this mythical bird all my life and two days ago I finally saw it in Darien Panama while guiding a great group of birders from Spain.
This is a male taking care of it's 3 months old chick. Female was not present, probably hunting.
I want to dedicate these photos to my beloved father Fernando who thought me since I was a little boy to appreciate and take care of nature and specially birds. It is because of him that I could experience one of the biggest nature displays in the world!.
Thank you Dad.
And also thanks to @operadorlatinobirding and Luis Mario for putting together the trip!. #getolympus#harpyeagle#panamabirding#darienpanama#monsterbird#naturephotography#wildlifephotography#birdingphotography#birding
