There were a number Osprey out fishing yesterday evening.  I didn't get any shots of them actually catching a fish, so I'll have to go back later today and hope they're still at it. :)

Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Zitting Cisticola or Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis), is widely distributed Old World warbler whose breeding range includes southern Europe, Africa outside the deserts and rainforest, and southern Asia down to northern Australia. A small bird found mainly in grasslands, it is best identified by its rufous rump, lacks any gold on the collar and the brownish tail is tipped with white. During the breeding season, males have a zigzagging flight display accompanied by regular "zitting" calls that has been likened to repeated snips of a scissor. They build their pouch nest suspended within a clump of grass.

Marekjoz - the white bird with the orange beak I believe is a Common Tern but you can go to whatbird.com to verify if uncertain

Here's a crisp shot of a Heermann's Gull taken at Dana Point Harbor on 9/28/12.  The bird is listed as Near Threatened.  Taken with a Canon 5d Mark III and a 400mm L 5.6.  Settings were 1/1600, F6.3, ISO 400, + 1/3 EV, Tv mode.
Thanks

Thanks, I'm not too familiar with birds' names, just shot it occasionally when they are in my gear's range (70-200 + ext) on a FF :) I just call it gull or seagull or just simply a bird, what is true for sure :)
I'm wondering switching my 70-200 f4 L IS to 300 F4 L IS or 400 F5 .6 L.  I was using 300 F4 L IS for one event and have found, that photos, which have hit the focus were far better than those with my lenses but the problem was, that its focus was unpredictable on 5d2 even after AFMA as it focused very differently depending on the distance to target.
