Still much good work to follow here.

And finally!
I got some decent shots of 'my' goshawk after chasing this at several locations for almost two years.
They are shy when around the nest, and by now also well hidden in the foliage.
All three pictures are handheld using
Canon 6D, Tamron 150-600 @ 600mm, f6.3, 1/500s, ISO 1600.

Location: North of Copenhagen, Denmark.



Enjoying photography very much - and that includes the technicalities as well as the planning, shooting and post-processing. Equipment is centered around a Canon 6D.

The local peregrine falcon at the very top of a spire enjoying lunch. It's remarkable that you can get a reasonable shot of a bird occupying only 700x500 px at the centre of an image on a 5DSR with a 400mm DO at 800mm, hand held. A few years, ago I could only have dreamed about taking such shots. Nowadays, you could get something nearly as sharp with a Rebel and a cheap 150-600mm - we are so lucky.

As always when I have no time to follow closely this topic there are bunch of interesting birds and great shots (and making the answering kind of confused ::)!
But there is a post that make me laughing - jprusa, you are lucky man - forget the onions, you have a robin at home ;D! And it could be just me but it is like saying "don't even think about it, I'm here to stay!!!!"
Out of the season of the migratory birds it's kind of boring here - not big diversity of birds. I got some shots of hybrid (presumably) mama Hawaiian duck (Anas wyvilliana) and  some of her offspring. They look pretty much as non hybrid, but every one says that on Oahu they are all hybrids with mallard and I'm not the expert on this.
Attaching also shots of the Red-whiskered Bulbul.
