Very nice, and what's with the arm bands?  Are they hired to catch oysters?  ;)

Har !
Scientists use them to track the birds. There is a site to report the location of a bird encounter.
It is a good use of all the gear you have, to help with bird science. Yellow tags indicate a bird in Massachusetts.

 IslanderMV, thanks for that.  It would be relatively rare for me to see a banded bird where I am but I'm sure they are doing similar work here.

 fish_shooter, may I suggest a little higher resolution for posted photos to make them more enjoyable.

I shot this today as I arrived at my at my rural home on the Pawnee Grassland east of Ft. Collins, CO.  It was quite some distance in the sky above me as it flew around my acreage.  5DsR, 400mm f/5.6, 1/800, f/9 & ISO 400.  Exposure set +2/3rd stop to compensate for the bright sky. It is a 100% crop that is significantly less than 1 megapixel. It is hard to get within a few hundred feet of my semi-resident raptor.  If perched, it tends to take off as soon as it sees me.

That's a wonderful shot with the 5DsR at 1/800 handheld(I assume it's handheld)
So they don't come close but hey I wished I had them over my backyard  ;)

Hi Folks.
For various reasons I haven't been able to get to look here for a while, 4 or 5 pages! There are so many great images that it is going to have to suffice to say a general nice job folks, also the discussion re 5Dsr vs 1DxII with examples has been interesting too, thanks.
Hi Josjan,
Nice shot, welcome to the forum.
Sorry Quick Click, beat you to that one! ;D

Cheers, Graham.
