Hawk/Eagle anatomy reference

I've been trying to model a realistic osprey, but I'm having trouble finding useable avian anatomy reference-- particularly of the muscular and skeletal structure, as it's difficult to tell from photographs exactly where feathers end and musculature begins.
I'd be grateful for any help offered.

artifex(),

Try searching the SurgiCat Database, the link to which was posted to this forum just a few days ago by another member:

Hope this helps! SurgiCat is the online database of the extensive collections of an Anatomy Museum in London. It looks great! Hope you find what you need.

For example, I did a really fast search for 'osprey', and came up with this, though I'm sure there's much more there:

I did a broader search for 'bird' and came up with this:

Thanks, that's useful.
I could really use a diagram of a raptor's muscular structure, or even a good photo of a raptor without any feathers-- I don't suppose you know of a museum with pictures specifically about ornithology?

Hmm, I did a Google search for ornithology museum (thanks for the word, I forgot that the study of birds was ornithology)

Try here:

The Audubon Society:
http://www.audubon.org/

They have a page on Bird Resources:
http://www.audubon.org/bird/bird_resources.html

Also I did a search for bird anatomy museum, and came up with this:

http://www.nhm.org/birds/home.html

If you click on 'bones' on the left navigation panel, there's a generic diagram of a bird skeleton.

I would also just do a Google search and see what you turn up. If you find any great sites, please post them here!

Cheers,
