Peter: The Birds in Flight pictures are pretty much SOOC. I usually lightly use Curves, Saturation and the Unsharp Mask in Paintshop Pro. On the stationary birds sitting on utility poles in the Birds forum, I attempted to clone out power lines and cables. ISO is generally 1000 or lower. Thanks for your comments. I am sure your eye for detail is sharper than mine. All comments welcome.

Thanks Michele and Charles. Robert, there's so many good noise reduction/sharpening products out there that virtually a one click does the lot. I'm thinking DxO Photolab 6, ON1RAW, Topaz Photo AI which are the ones I've trialed. As to the eyes I very much doubt it!!

There really are some amazing birds-in-flight photos in this thread.

My own achievements are a little more modest. Here's the Poaka above the Ahuriri Estuary in Napier, NZ.

Nope, that is a white-faced heron (Egretta novaehollandiae), grey herons (Ardea cinerea) are not even found in Australia.

Thanks Heikki, I really should be more careful and get myself a bird identification book. I did have one but it disappeared some time ago. The white face now seems obvious
