This Common Buzzard landed in a bush that I was parked next to watching a couple of Brambling. Taken with a K3iii/FA*600mm F4 ED[IF]/RRS BH-55/Eckla window mount.





K-3iii/Sigma 800mm F5.6 APO EX/RRS BH-55/Eckla window mount. 1.3 crop switched in.

A pretty lousy day with overcast sky and occasional snow. So I ended up staying home but a red-tailed hawk and a few feeder birds visited the backyard.
Nothing close to what Gary had but I am pretty happy with the shots. Shot with the F*600/4 and K3-3.

Red-tailed Hawk


House Finch


Northern Cardinal

And do not worry or apologize for your English. I've been speaking it all my life and I still do not understand it.

Sandhill cranes, and what is the white bird? Great shot!

The carmine bee-eater is a intra African migrant that nests on the ground or in river banks from end of Auguts in our Zambezi region. At that stage they are very colourful, but becomes quite drab when breeding stops. It seems that they are never still and in flight shots just luck, but late afternoon can find them posing for a shot or two
Your photos are great! Helps to have great subject matter.

Gotta love this thread. Wonderful bird shots from Asia, Africa, North America and Europe in succession.

Adding another continent. Rainbow Lorikeet on a bottlebrush (callistemon). KP + DA 55-300 PLM at 300mm. Processed in DxO PL5 and finished with Nik Color Efex Pro.

Another bird created by a kid with a new box of 64 Crayolas.

And that is a beautiful image.

Thnak you WPRESTO, Des!

I have exactly the same feeling.

These are pictures of sparrows. They are common species in Japan.

From yesterday's shot.

From past shot.
