Great stuff. Following a Short-eared owl in flight isn't easy, but you did very well.

I might suggest turning down the volume on the Gyrfalcon clip... it's very loud.

Thank you Kin for your praise! I agree with you about the volume on that clip. It`s because of a waterfall under the nest!/ KD

Hello Marty! It`s not a secret, I use a older Vinten vision10 tripod head and also the tripod is vinten. I love to film flying birds and i have also practise pans on flying birds very much! It`s not easy but very funny!!

The pans is sometimes from long distance and sometimes much closer. Thank you for your praise!/ KD

Karl-David,

Your clips of several raptors are delightful. I would like to know the locations of your golden eagle, pallid harrier, short-eared owl clips and also your rare close-up of golden oriole, please? I have tried and failed to get good flight shots of these birds for years.

Did you use autofocus or manual focus for the flight shots?

Thank you so very much Brendan! All of my bird clips are filmed in Sweden. I always use manual focus, my favourite lens is Sigma 50-500 mm.

Karl-David,

I shoot raptors all the time, I know how hard it is to get quality footage. Drop the noise level, keep the hunger scream!!

the immature golden eagle was brilliant!!

The gyrfalcon eyrie was very nicely exposed, crystal clear and just nice. I was impressed at how dark these juviniles were. curiously, were the adults typical grey adults? or was one a black morph?

Thank you Dale for nice compliments! Yes i know the loud problem with falcon video, but the big problem is the noisy big waterfall under the nest. Its common here in northern europe/Sweden that the juveniles are dark. The parents was typical grey.
