This one's a bit of a departure for me - IT's the first non-wild biRd I've ever posted.

She's a Red-tailed Black-cockatoo, and is one of the trained performers at Australia Zoo in Queensland. She whizzes around a huge stadium, swooping over people and perching in predetermined spots. She's a beauty and, at 6 shows a day, a real trooper!

@ants: It appears that you were focused on the tree rather than the bird and that your shutter speed was a bit slow. You may want to try center spot AF (and other settings detailed in Frankman's http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=29447&PID=308214#308214. I look forward to seeing more of your Estonian birds.
Cheers... Brian
Thanks for the advices. We "played hide and seek" and I decide to focus on the tree and shoot if possible.

Neat shot 6tyNine. A good example of variability in gulls of same apparent species, Ringbill. Your bird has pronounced red around eye and behind the mouth which is barely visible on my bird.

Cute little bird. It seems to be a very good set-up.

Pavel, when that bird wakes up he's going to be really annoyed. Somebody's nicked one of his legs while he's been asleep!!
