Tired falcon



We just picked up our guide from the airport and started to drive to the Göksu Delta for birding as we saw an Eleonora's Falcon sitting on a power pole. Maybe this falcon just flew over the ocean and arrived save in Turkey? So we didn't bother the bird too long. We made a few photos of this special falcon and moved.

It's awesome to see an Eleonora's Falcon so close and so clear like this!
