Red Kite -- The Red Kite was saved from national extinction by one of the world's longest running protection programmes, and has now been successfully re-introduced to England and Scotland. I like the shift from orange to green.
The Peregrine Falcon, also known as the Peregrine, and historically as the Duck Hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae. A large, crow-sized falcon, it has a blue-grey back, barred white underparts, and a black head and "moustache".
While this sparrowhawk scanned the sky in search of a feathered meal, it did not notice the great spotted woodpecker it hunted earlier was only hiding some 50cm below it! By staying motionless for tedious minutes, the woodpecker eventually succeeded to stay safe from the hawk-eyed gaze of motion.
