I found the Great Horned Owl brood again yesterday in the late afternoon. They are hanging around a small slough and one of the juveniles was right down on the ground close to the water. I got some photos and I tried using video with the K3 and the FA600. I wanted to show the little head bob these guys do. I posted a link to the video via YouTube. Mom is in the first photo and as can be seen the youngsters are rapidly loosing their fluffy coats for the mature feathering.

Some shots from today's shooting in the morning. Juvenile Bald Eagle on the tree and later flew to nearby tree to join one of the parents.
Shot with K-50 and SMC A 400mm f/5.6 lens. I love this setup..decent focal range and no tripod needed.

I really like the first two shots of the juvenile eagle. The look as it stares down is perfect.


Nice work.

Awesome images ! The Hume Tree Creeper sounds very familiar to our Carolina Wren and is built similar probably from the same family of that species

That is an excellent set that stirs envy. The peak-through-branches images of the adult really catch the eye (mine and the bird's)

fairly small -- around 12" long, little or no tail. Really likes to eat grass.

Thank you all.

Went out today again this morning. Classic Pacific North West...cloudy :-)). Not an easy to shoot at low light against the sky.

Today I took my SMC 500mm f/4.5. Eagle came back to the same tree. There was a Great Blue Heron fishing, I couldn't resist and took some pictures of him. It was a strange day out there today. Normally there are birds singing everywhere all the time. . Today it was absolutely quiet. Not sure why.
