Hmm,
well he's not quite as pretty as some of the others shown here, plus I had to shoot through
a fixed-pane window, but still he has a certain charm........

I'm jealous, the only shot I have of a cresty is a very distant one, several years ago, a bit like my crossbills.
Canon 5D MkIII, 7D, 300mm L IS f/2.8 and a few other L's

A bit boring, but here is a photo of two seagulls at Portsea in Australia.  I used a Canon 5D MIII with 24-105mm f/4 L.

Here's your picture with the exposure dropped by one stop :)

Corey - I think that 2nd pic is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker.  You can go here to verify if it helps http://www.whatbird.com Click search and you can walk through the wizard - EZ

it's a Red Bellied alright, and a really nice image!  Congrats Corey!  Beautiful!
