Warm biscuits would be better. And coffee for the other guy.

I am doing a Eagle Nest watch this year. This is one of the nests. This is typical eagle nest shot. I can see it from only one spot about 300 ft to the north and through a lot of foliage.

@ Stan

Those two could probably do with a little boost in saturation and contrast, although the light seems to have made things more difficult.

Okapi I love it.
Stan maybe a touch of contrast, looks like you over flattened the picture. Or maybe you did that in Adobe RGB. Anyway they are interesting birds.
bharnois that a fine Red Tailed Hawk.
Dirk I like #1

Okapi, that's a combo of luck and good photography.
How close was it ? And what combo did you use ?

This picture is taken in a preserved area where I made the inventory of species, as I go there each day, they know me very good, I'm the white thing(Citroën Berlingo ) who has seeds and fruits, It's made at about ten feet with the 300SSM and 1,4X teleconverter.
They are very familiar because they don't see anybody than me and when it is cold as those days they appreciate the complementary nourishment that I furnish.
But we have made a try with another car, and they have a totally different approach, I have observed that with all birds.
