Here's an owl that I spotted here at the Calgary Bird Sanctuary. It was hard to get a decent picture with the way the lighting was that day.

Not really a bird, but...it still flies!  :P

Canon7D with f/2.8 300mm II + 2xTC, iso 400, 1/320 - 1/500  f/5.6

These are at the limits of resolution as the kingfisher was quite far away. I was hand holding the light combo with the 300mm + 2xTC. The kingfisher hovered with head dead still, dived and came up with his catch.

This hawk came calling today. He sat on the mango tree in our garden and called out. I took a few shots (18) and he gave me a strange look :)

Nice! What did you shoot it with? What were your settings? How far we're you?

I learned that if you click on the photo (if it says on Flickr), it will take you to Flickr where the EXIF data to include camera, lens, settings, location etc are all usually listed :)
