I took this today on a bad camera but yeah as far as what I have 0 clue can't decide between a buzzard or a golden eagle. Found it in the Swiss mountains and it was quite sizable too around 1-2.5 meter wing span

With the dark patagials, I'd say this is a Red Tailed Hawk. Are the Swiss Mts. in the USA?

Sorry, I had a hard time deciding among the Barn Swallows. Also got my best ever photo of a Bald Eagle and a decent Great Blue Heron with Mute swan pic.

From the near-sea mountains of Pacific Mexico- An Emerald Toucanet. I was searching and searching for new birds to shoot when this one almost landed on my head. Totally unexpected, had never even heard of a Toucanet before.  One shot and it was gone for good.  Never saw another one.
