These are some amazing shots in this forum ! The inflight picts are really cool.  I have only a few shots in my collection to contribute. My favorite is a pair  of Meadow-hawks mating.

Two juvenile Black Skimmers at sunset - Martha's Vineyard , taken last summer, I am hoping they return this year.
(there is a Peregrine falcon around the nest area, may scare them away )

Two shots of black-browed albatross skimming the waters by our ship in Antarctica. In the "pair" shot, I particularly like the way their eyes are level but the wings are tilted.

Now there is something you don't see every day ! Nice !

Yesterday I spotted red-winged blackbirds for the first time this spring. Hopefully will have a chance to shoot some soon. Meanwhile a couple of pictures from last year.
Canon 5Dm3 + 100-400L @400mm





The male is really well done. Getting black colored birds done right is not easy. Check out the enlarged image.

Female Greater Scaup and male redhead ducks

Crisp - clear pictures of waterfowl usually seen in the distance.  We don't see the Redheads much anymore in these parts. Good to see them. Thanks

Something new for me, a Yellow-eyed Junco.  These little birds are found only at higher elevations in southern Arizona and in Mexico.  I spotted this one at 8,000 feet on Mt. Lemmon near Tucson.  Canon 5Diii, 400DO, ISO 800, aperture preferred, f5.6 @ 1/500.

Great shot of a cool bird.
