Nice shot but I feel sorry for the GBH. His beak looks chapped?
Good question. I don't know enough about birds to comment.

A few today from me with my F*300 4.5
These look like scans from National geographic, great stuff especially No.1.

Looking good Gary, most of my birds are black and white right now... I guess thats the disadvantage of living in a country with way to much snow. Evolution favours animals with a lot of white on them.

Very nice video Larry - sure looks like you have a stable rig - not a hint of vibration or movement.

And my favorite Cormorant - I still find it so weird that they nest in the trees.
Thanks Stan, knew you'd like the cormorant. I'll be sure and get some video of their antics as they start to fill the trees.
I want to figure out a better way to mic them because the noises they make while nesting are quite amusing, I may need to ask in the video forum about shotgun mics

I have switched to a video head for the Q adapted stuff on a larger diameter carbon tripod so it is pretty steady since the camera and lens itself is pretty light.
The video damping helps with smoother motion at the longer magnifications.

(I bought a very cheap head which isn't the greatest design but I didn't want too spend much as I was just testing. Wanted to see if I would like it vs the gimbal I used before.
I am going to upgrade eventually when I find one where the handle is more offset.)

That's interesting with the video head - hope you will share your comparison when you get settled with the head you want.

From today with the DA*60-250, I decided to try just walking up instead of sitting in the blind with the TC. They didn't seem to mind, too much.

Oh wow. Even pigeons have wonderful colors. Excellent pictures as usual.

This one is taken late this afternoon. Light is fading and the background is terrible but at least I got the eyes. Yeah!!

I took advantage of the spring-like weather today. First stop was one spot I know of for shorties. I found one, saw it for a brief second and only managed to snap one shot.

It's nesting time for the baldies. I must've had 10+ circling overhead today, with another 5+ guarding their nests.
