He caught a few fish whie I was watching. I couldn't get to close though. The fish in the next two took him about 20 minutes to finally subdue. Pretty big fish for a small bird.

I couldn't help but notice this Hairy Woodpecker's beak.
So I cropped the head for more detail.
Shooting at high speed gets so much more than anticipated.

Eagle
Sony A900 | Minolta 300mm/4 G |f7.1|1/5000| ISO 800
I could not believe I made either of these shots. (they are of the same bird) I Grabbed the MinO 300mm off the tripod, raise it up and focus, loosing my balance on a slightly rolling float walk. I managed to stay upright and get the shot.   He was slowing down, aiming for a pine tree top, then landed.. ..

I had been kneeling down on one knee photographing some Eider ducks I had waited 15 min. to swim past me for a better shot. No, the eagle didn't have 'duck for dinner', this time.


This one he was leaving the area

I was lucky enough that the US Post Master called me to let me know she just saw this owl fly by her window and all she could see were wings. I arrived there in a rush, the owl moved to another tree, it was starting to get dark, I spied it in a low branch of a neighbor's Maple tree. I took a few shot from beneath and a little ways out, then climbed a second floor ourside stairs and was eye level.
It didn't move the whole time I snapped away. And this was my first owl!

Happy New Year To All

My Birthday present from me to me whilst in Singapore a silver beasty 70-400G.
So organize a trip to the Jurong bird park a fantastic facility and well worth the trip unfortunately the weather was not very favourable overcast & rainy & the flying part of the raptor display was cancelled. Have not had a lot of time with this lens and already luv the results compared to my 50-500 Bigma.

Enjoy

don't know what kind of parrot this is , but it's not proper from Madrid , Spain , .Apparently , people buying them and leaving them as they are so noisy , is starting to be a problem here .
I found a lot around 30 in a park today . As you can see , people feed them with bread.

Nice one, Pavel, excellent DOF.
But I've been chasing warblers and kinglets the last 2 weeks, and I'm fed up and frustrated with the little ones.
How about upsizing a bit? One from my trip to Bosque.

First attempts at low level shots using live view on my new A580. Nice to go home without sea gull poop in my beard.





There was a bird here, I swear!





OK, no bird here, but they were close by.

Very nice contributions from some new members! Welcome to Dyxum's bird thread wk2004, Tassie, and VictorV!

@wk2004: nice composition and detail under a variety of conditions. These look like the same birds in my neck of the woods (NC).

@Tassie: good capture. You may want to try adding a bit of sharpening. For web posting, two sharpening steps are a good idea (one before and one after resizing). BTW, which 500mm lens were you using?

@VictorV: I always like seeing species from around the world. There aren't may members from Russia who post bird shots and yours are quite good. The first looks somewhat like the American Robin (Turdus migratorius), but I see on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_birds_of_Russia - Wikipedia that you have a couple of species in this genus that might be easily confused.

Cheers... Brian

P.S. Some fine shots from the usual suspects, too!

I was wondering if this is a young Long Tail


This gull showed up at the wharf with 2 other gulls in chase
for the bread of course. But the funny part about it is
this gull had to have gotten this bagel from my
own yard 2 blocks away. My husband threw it out earlier
in the day.
