I do not shoot many birds, I stick to the easier stuff ! These were taken recently in the gardens of a hotel I was staying. The Green Woodpecker is proabably the most 'exotic' wild bird I have ever captured, shame it is not very good. I only saw it this once and was shooting from the bottom of the tree and the highlights are 'blown' these are the best I can squeeze out of the shots.

A700 1/2/6 with 70-200ssm 3/4/5 with Tamron 200-500 (exif included)

1. Green Woodpecker





2.





3 Mother (is this a mistle thrush) ?





4. Mother & Chick





5. And the ubiquitous Robin






6. And this one you have probably seen before featured in Exhibition 54 recently.

Magnificent Frigatebird
First one of these I've managed pics of. This one's a juvenile, the adult males are the one's with that big red bladder at the neck.

Also waterbirds, but a bit less majestic

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