A few more of one of my favorite birds, White Breasted Nuthatch, funny how they eat upside down like Goldfinches.

Beautiful shots Brandy and VictorV!

A few from my yard this morning.

American Goldfinch




I need help with identification on the next one, perhaps a Fly Catcher? It has some similarity to a finch but the beak and head do not match what I know about Finches.


Same bird different point of view.


Tufted Titmouse


Tit and Chickadee

Wow, graet shooting here, can't match that.

Brandy, never saw a bird like that. Excellent
VictorV, especially like the synchronous march in the 4th
dca1213, the 3rd from the second series is great, perfect composition with the branch and oof background. Also like the nuthatch series a lot

My meagre effort below, just a wading seagull that came out OK (after some crop)


A850 + 80-200 HS G
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Very nice set of the Nuthatches - but think the second set is better . I think the bird you are not sure about looks (in shape, pose etc) very similar to a Spotted Flycatcher here in UK, so your thinking could well be correct. But regradless of what it is think the first picture of it is my favourite by far of these - great pic

Victor
Great set - so much detail, particularly like the last one

Brandy
Another very strange looking bird !!!!! - well captured

Beautiful portraits Graham! I love #5 especially - at least for penguins any and all neck-nibbling leaves the resulting hickeys hidden away discreetly under their plumage...

Here's a bejewelled little feller what eluded my a500 + 500 f8 for almost a week:

#1 - Swallowtail Refueling



This particular one lives in the garden of the house where I'm visiting in Bahia, so I've been dutifully standing guard under the bottlebrush tree every morning at sunrise. But there are so many interfering leaves and branches that I only got the one relatively good in-flight shot, and most all the times he'll perch in shade and/or high up where the shade or silhouetting will obscure his true colors.

This morning however I went walking in a nearby pineapple field, and it turns out Mr Swallowtail's brothers prefer Pineapple Port over Bottlebrush Brandy, and in between the sips they provide much better poses and light angles while perched:

#2 - Warble of the Wild




#3 - Oy Are You Stalking Me?




In between snacktimes they tend to go up higher and sit on phone wires, sometimes with a good ruffle before settling down.

#4 - Swallowtail Shakeup

Dennis, I'm going to go with a Willow Flycatcher for that one. Just a guess from perusing Sibley's.

Grahm, I don't think I've ever seen that kind of detail/sharpness from the 500 reflex. Well done!

Here are a few of mine from the weekend. I have been inspired to try looking for more environmental portraits rather than only the feather peeping close up portraits. It's challenging.

1 There's a reason they call them Night Herons.






2. Standing sentinel on the dawn.





3. Young Sora foraging





4. Flying tight formation





Thanks for lookong
Just for fun.
