A bird out in my backyard... that actually let me take photos of it without the need for a telephoto lens (but this one is with my 70-200 f/4 IS).  I could actually use my 24-70 at times but I ended up feeling i wanted a tighter fit and didn't want to scare him off.
Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 60D; EF-S 10-22; EF 70-200 f/4L IS; EF 24-70 f/2.8L II; 580EX II.  Soon to add: 50 1.2L, 135 f/2L, 8-15L

Did you apply any luminance noise correction in the lightroom shot? I'd like to know your post processing changes in each program. I'm also intrigued at the prospect of DPP possibly correcting noise better than LR.

Yes, the luminance noise reduction was applied in the LR shot (from the 7D). I mention the 7D because the the 5D3 shot of the ducks were also processed through LR (with NR applied).

rj79in - that looks like the "butcher bird"..aka Logger Shrike..due to their small talons they have no choice but to impale their prey on thorns, barb wires..anything prickly to assist with their kill

Here's two more masked bandits captured on 1-13-12:

Mailman - truly a brilliant photo..excellent work on that eagle shot..I should look at the EXIF info or if you care to share..

Intriguing ... the LR shot has noise while the DPP does not
- Indeed I noticed this too.  it looks like you may have some NR on in DPP.  check your tabs 3rd and 4th to be certain.

I agree, Lightroom appears to be more noisy at first but once you work the sliders with luminance / chrominance and masking it helps quite a bit.
Thanks

DND..love the shots..owls are fascinating - thanks for sharing.

Here's a Say's Phoebe in Flight.  They have such a unique flight pattern:   Buoyant fluttering flight with shallow wing beats., Hovers, dips for prey.  I witnessed them land on a branch.  They wait a minute, fly very close to the tree over an open area then flutter and hover for about 20 seconds then fly back.  Its a repeated process and intriguing to watch.
