American Bittern with a snake. Autofocus froze for a minute until I shut camera down and restarted. I missed the best action.

Really nice captures,
the Merlin shot is a beautiful raptor.

The Dark-eyed junco is my personal favorite though - such a wonderful small bird!

Here is a bit tougher identification puzzle...


α7R IV + Sony FE 5.6-6.3/200-600 G OSS + 1.4 TC @ 437 mm, f/9, 1/1600 s, ISO 2000

And the answer is that this is a hybrid: most likely Canada goose greylag goose.

Nice shot of the red Kite, Howard. Was that near your home?
I used to see them every time I drove along the M4 near Reading, but never got the chance to stop and take a pic.
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A7Rii, A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras ...
