A good set as usual. I like the singing lark and the avoct in particular.
The latter is just a black and white species here (as far as I know)

I love these siblings!
The feeding ibis is a nice captured moment.

Charles, you're chugging out so many good pics that I'm getting tired of saying well done.
Why the square crops?
I'm a free-cropper, by the way. While I do see the point of standards such as 3:2, 16:9, 1:1 etc. I crop pretty much as I see fit. Since I'm a completely digital tog who almost never prints anything, it gives me total freedom to choose whatever aspect ratio that I feel is appropriate.

Great set (again) Charles.
Let's try a square crop on this lapwing (shot handheld at 800mm)
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

I (still) like the Tricolored Herons
It would be a good thing if you could catch them in their first flying attempts.
Good luck with that.

Very kind of you Sashi.

I have moved to square crops because my extended family encouraged me to post on Instagram where they follow me.

Domien, I will try to catch the Tricoloreds first flight. It will not be long before they fly. I saw the mother coaxing them but they have not go the nerve yet. They use their wings to propel themselves through the branches. Still buddies today.

I thought there were only two Glossy Ibis chicks but these photos show there are three.
