I get the privilege of being first. I hope these don't disappoint. Here's a few shots I got on a birding trip to Ecuador last month. Lighting conditions were challenging, or rather: it rained every minute of every day for 5 days straight. Then it stopped for 2 hours and then it rained some more.

Sounds like trying conditions Hopkins you did well - definitely some different species there.

I got extraordinarily fortunate ( read that as lucky!) I was trying to get a mated pair of Hooded Mergansers
They were having a discussion... when the wood ducks showed up. I was under a set of bushes above the flood containment pond called by the neighborhood "Lake Le Mark" It was the only way to get even that close to the Mergansers. I can say the shots were taken from about 55 yards away. The moment they even thought a human was around the wood ducks bolted
and now a serious crop of the leaving

Thanks for viewing.

Some first shots with Sigma 150-500 taken today. I posted some others in the lens forum. Both A77, 500mm, f8 and Juncos.

ISO1600, 1/320sec


ISO800, 1/200sec. A bit windy - looks a bit like a Titmouse crest on top.

Aha, the obligatory sandhill cranes. I happen to prefer the egret portrait for a change!

From this morning I only have a bird print to show.

A pigeon with a small falcon biting in his neck flew into our window with a mighty blow. The pigeon didn't survive but the falcon flew away before I could get my camera out.

You can see the falcon's head/beak print behind the entire pigeon print.
This picture was helped by a strong sun backlight and some extra clarity in Lightroom.

Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here
