Hi rrdoh.
Love the detail in no 4, food flying, cool. Great shots, only get to see these in cages, and the cages can never be big enough!  :'(

Cheers Graham.

Wonderful image tom parker Islander scyrene James and Colin


Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala) by alabang, on Flickr

Excellent details, Paolo. I immediately recognized this juvenile as a barbet, having recently seen and shot a Taiwan Barbet (M. nuchalis) for the first time while hiking in the hills.

A couple of other birds I shot recently:

The Island Thrush was shot in a thin fog, handheld, while hiking.

nineyards, just realized you're very close to me (Ardrossan).  Edmonton must have one of the best river valleys around.  Very nice shot.  My pair of Pileated haven't been around for over 2 weeks now.

Two very young Barn Swallows on a farm fence. They were still being fed by adults and were huddling together.

60D, 100-400mm
1/640, ISO640, f5.6, 400mm

For me, this photo session was evidence that I should save for a FF camera. Most of the action shots ( not posted )were a bit blurry as I had to shoot slow and wide open. Crops from my 60D get grainy after ISO640.

Juvenile Bald Eagles - pretty sure the last photo is of number 2.  These guys are at a nest that I usually find adult eagles... I've seen the adults here several times over the last couple years, the spring before last I spotted a baby in the nest.  This visit the adults were no-where to be seen.  Question - do the adults give the nest to their young?
