Hi Maeve.  Please, please, please feel free to use any / as many of my
photos as you'd like. It would be my pleasure and make me proud. You'll
see that I have shots of tons of raptors and owls ... all the ones you
listed in your email ... + more. Here's a link to my online flicker
'birds' (aka "Natural Beauty") album ... you can easily download them
directly from flick:

Best regards, Joe DeMarte
