Wow, fascinating! Thank you and great shots!
They are called spurs, and they are used in conflict. According to Wikipedia: "It is equipped with red bony extensions under the wings (spurs), used to intimidate foes and fight birds of prey."
What is with the pointy orange spike on the wing? Is this skin covering bone? Any idea what they use it fore?!
I know, they're quite aggressive now. Thanks!
These guys get real grumpy this time of year with their new babies around.Great series.
Excellent shot! That's amazing! Congratulations for the spotting and the picture!

Cool shot :)
Wow!! When I first saw the first pic as the screen scrolled, it looked like maybe a big-horn sheep skull...with big curling horns on either side? I swear! Look at it in the little thumbnail!! Wonderful series of photos!!
