Cool to get a pair of fairly diverse birds in the same shot like that, freeomega! 

Harry has to be one of the best fed BCNH's I've seen, serendipidy.  Cool shots, as always!

Sunday, I spotted a Loggerhead Shrike perched in a bush.  Took a little while to get something other than the head on shot.  Now if I could just catch him/her with some prey.

Very nice shots, keep up the good work Guys!

As you're shooting think of me cutting and welding SS tubing for my deck -ugh.  But I must resist the urge to head out with the camera!  :(

Very nice. Well composed and sharp. Colors complement each other.

Lovely!


I thought I would post this one too... 

I swear, this is not a montage... They were there at the same exact time... and this was shot in our backyard :)

This was taken a few seconds after the Broad-winged Hawk posted earlier.
Nice! Quite unique to be able to get a variety of birds in a single shot.

From today. 5D3, 100-400L
I like the portrait.

Until yesterday, I always imagined that Harry would be wading in water to catch his prey.

Oh, btw, I like the "Bait, prey and Fisher" picture too.  :)

Thanks :) He hates getting his feet wet, so he just stands waiting on the bank at water's edge.
He waits on the bridge concrete wall in front of my house for several hours until I come out and help him catch fish. He and I have perfected this and he catches about 20 fish every afternoon until he is full or I'm out of bread which takes about 20 minutes. As soon as I appear with the bread, 2 cardinals, a moorhen and several ducks arrive in quick order for a bread handout (the Heron hates bread).
Some from this afternoon.

My moorhen friend (Morey) gets a bread handout every evening with Harry and me. He will swim a long way to us, eat a little morsel, swim out of sight, and then return for seconds later as he is doing here. As I was quitting, I saw that Harry wasn't the only one catching fish tonight on our canal.  ;D

Hey Serendipidy, it was nice to see the location you're shooting from to get some perspective of what's taking place.  It's prompted me to add this shot of where the vast majority of my summer birds were shot.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for posting that, it's a very lovely and peaceful looking pond you have. Is it far from your house and do you shot just from the land or do you go out in a boat too? My small yard fronts the canal/drainage ditch, so I only have literally to walk 20-30 yards to where I shoot the heron and other birds. I admit it, I'm lazy. ;D
