One of the few I got this month in Tenerife. A Berthelot's Pipit taken with the Tamron 100-400mm on the 5DIV, near El Teide.

V good shot Alan, I like the framing.
Alan, I may follow your steps and get Tamron 100-400! I need something lighter than my lens and still considering even Tamron 150-600 (yeah, even that one is lighter but not with much). I'm waiting for more customer reviews to appear - for eventual issues.
I will post kind of missed shot taken with my lens handhold after long walk. On tripod I think it would be much better.

The "missed" shot that I promised (took me time to find the folder).
It is Lonchura punctulata (Scaly breasted Munia or Nutmeg Mannikin).
Plus two more from the same day.

Thanks ISv.
You know birds very well.  I'd say as well as Cornell Ornithology! 
Have another one, shot in Australia Kangaroo Island, in a zoo like preservation compound.

Great!
See this site: http://hbs.bishopmuseum.org/birds/rlp-monograph/
Click on the menu on the left on "Primary Checklist" - you can find the endemics on Maui and eventually locations to see them. On Oahu it is difficult to see endemic birds (few exceptions only).

BTW - No, not as Cornell Lab  :). In Cornell Lab they will know the bird on your last posted picture - I don't :-[.
All I know is "exotic raptor" ;D!
