I have been working on my new website http://geocities.com/veracruzhawkwatch
I am dedicating some pages to different species of raptors in flight in order to help people ID raptors. I have photos of Broad-winged hawk, Swainson's hawks and Turkey vultures. I could use some flight photos of Sharp-shinned hawks, Cooper's hawks, Merlins, red-tailed hawks, red shouldered hawks, merlins, american kestrels, hook-billed kites, plumbeous kites, American swallow-tailed kites. They don't have to be close or super sharp as I am most interested in flight shapes. You can check out the page for and idea of what I am looking for. If you have any photos that you would like to share please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org

This weblog is about migrating birds of prey in Veracruz Mexico. It is called "River of raptors" because one may observe a steady "stream" of raptors on their southern migration. Veracruz is the "Everest" of hawk watch sites. Very few people have witnessed this natural event first hand. I am hooked on raptor observation and desire to share with others this incredible event.
