Lucky you! Why is this never happens to me nowadays? all raptors are far away these times...

It was still perched in the bush when I drove off.

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.

House Finch

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.

This Common Buzzard landed in a bush that I was parked next to watching a couple of Brambling.
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.

I have exactly the same feeling.

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

From yesterday's shot.

I think they are dirt common anywhere they find themselves to. I never seem to find piles of them in a single tree like that it is usually just a handful.

Pentax really needs to make you the official DA 55-300 PLM ambassador. Your photos are the best argument in favor of that lens.

I have exactly the same feeling..
Those sparrows, here called either House Sparrows or English Sparrows, are prolific breeders (multiple clutches from one female each year), are aggressive (they will displace other birds from nesting sites), and are fully adapted to living with humans even in dense urban settings.

And for African birds

A male crowned crane showing off for any girls close enough to watch (there were several)

BTW: Sigma 50~500mm, original version

A gray-headed kingfisher
and a white-browed coucal.
