Guilty! He's there as part of the story. If I'm setting a precedent then I think it's an okay one. Four to one ratio and clearly setting out to catch flight. But you are right it'll only get worse.

Beautiful shot Keith. I have yet to see a snowy.

Lovely composition Addy.

As to where to put photos... well... the title of the thread usually covers it? "Birds" seems wide open to me? Put whatever you want there? This is a sub thread for those who are interested.

Seems like enough are.

Great Magpie Geese and cockatoos. That green wing is strange! The green is also present on at least two shots before. Must be a reflection I suppose but I've rarely seen one that strong and from that kind of distance Very reflective feathers? Any giant mirrors in the vicinity?

Is there any green naturally in those feathers? If not you should desaturase the greens as first step in processing maybe?

This is more of a travel shot than something to get the birders excited, but it's recent and it is definitely in flight

A7RRiii and 100-400 and cropped landscape to portrait. Halong Bay, Vietnam in horrible visibility. ISO 2000   1/1250s wide open at 400mm

I believe this is a Black Kite, although it was identified to me as a sea eagle.

And from Kenya a couple of Ruppell's Griffon Vultures, which is unfortunately becoming a bit of an exotic in most of Africa. The highest flying bird in the world if you didn't know.

A77ii and "ye olde original" Sony 70-400

One at first light



And to get a better idea of actual colour. That is the ground below this one by the way. I have wings too.

Forked tail says Black Kite to me, though BK's might be different over there than they are here downunder.

I'd chalk something like that down to local staining, the birds have just foraged in a waterway with algae and the feathers have picked up a stain from it.

Interesting idea! Don't think my giant mirror theory is likely then?

hi
the green on the cockies wing may have been part of a rehab program , if it is not in processing, i mark release birds in a similar way , but only on the tail
