Peregrine Falcon

This Peregrine Falcon was actually sitting on a keeper's glove.  I don't think you can get a shot like this in the wild.  You can see that he has no tonsils.

Just Amazing! It looks like he is about to say something...or screech something... Wonderful!
You have turned me into a lover of nature and wildlife photography.
No uvula neither!!!

Actually, birds have between 6 and 8 "tonsular units" located at the top of their esophagus. They perform much the same task in birds as tonsils do in humans.
A great shot!!! Thanks Harvey
