Very nice set Robbert.
Especially the heron and the hawk, very sharp, lot of details and nice colours.

The park where I took the picture of the Tricolored Heron is a nesting mecca for many wading birds. Many are somewhat comfortable with people and allow one to approach quite close. Not true of the hawks and songbirds.
Thanks for comments.

A Buff Banded Rail. I'd never seen one of these before and came upon it quite unexpectedly.

At distance into the sun, heavy crop.


2 It slowly came in my direction.

3 The slightest movement however would send it scurrying into the bush.

4 After a long wait it finally came within a reasonable range.

5

Then just as I thought it would come closer another walker came by and spooked it. No return this time. 'Them's the breaks' with birding!!!

Some great virtual 'twitching' on this post.
Thanks to the togs and their long lenses.
Love the preening Eastern Phoebe.

Poor quality shot of a lifer - Crested Myna. Apparently they would rest on the roof top as the sun is rising behind them the against the light gang


And this tiny juvenile olive-backed sunbird decided to pose for me and not give me a hard time for once

Wish I had brought along the 1.4x TC as these ended up massive crops.
