    Beautiful photos CommodoreH.
    How lucky to go to Costa Rica, one of the countries with the highest biodiversity.
    I'm fascinated by loricati.
    In my opinion that is an American crocodile (scientific name: Crocodylus acutus), can you confirm me?

    Hi Chris, congratulations for your photos you are really good.
    I had imagined it was a sparrowhawk that we in Italy call "Sparviere" or "Sparviero".
    I am passionate about animals and can often recognize them at first sight, so much so that when my friends find a snake or an insect or other unusual animal they send me photos asking me what species it is.
    I try never to use the common name (which changes from state to state but also from region to region and creates confusion) but the scientific name, because thanks to the Limneus binomial it is unique throughout the globe without the possibility of error.
    I also love falconry and some time ago a friend brought us home a trained falcon but the photos were on his old cell phone.
    On my current phone I found these recent photos of a highly trained bird of prey, do you know which one it is? He is not endemic to Italy.
    And then there are these cute reptiles, which I adore.

    This is Chesterton windmill which is only a few miles away from me. Unfortunately at the moment the sails have been removed for repair.

    Yes, a sparrowhawk. We've had them in the garden a number of times over the years, usually at the expense of some other bird. They should have called it something else though as they often take larger birds, in this case a pigeon. Caught red beaked!

    I take all sorts of photographs but mainly landscapes and for the last few years birds.

    So now I am looking through what pictures I have handy on my computer which are worthy of posting.

    Here are a few shots taken in Costa Rica
    The sure way to succeed is, just try one more time

    Great bird picture!

    Definitely a fierce predator, not a a chickadee.

    Hi ChrisF, beautiful bird of prey.

    It looks like a sparrowhawk to me.
    Do you agree with me?

    To be clear, I use the scientific name (according to Limneus): Accipiter Nisus.

    Hi Dave, I wrote you a private message.
    For the moment I have only indicated the places of archaeological interest that concern classical civilization.
    I left out those too far from the city center.

    In the next messages, I will include places relating to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Barique, the Neoclassical and subsequent periods.
