Let us take a break............... I have been visiting these owlets for two weeks. Half the time they had presented themselves for photo sessions and other times they would just give me a brief look up.

I hope that this qualifies as a bird:

Gang Gang Cockatoo, female. I've had a number of them in the backyard over the past few days (both male and female). This one happily sat on a lower branch for 45min. The male sat higher up, in the canopy.

Great Image Steven!  Love Red Tailed Hawks!  Nicely done...
Red Tailed Hawk.  Photographed this past week with my 5D Mark iii, 100-400 4.5-5.6 L IS, ISO 640.  Cropped, brightened, contrast increased slightly and shadows lightened slightly for effect.

A few oldies... all T2i with 400 f/5.6L prime.

The comb crested jacana is an interesting one because it carries the young birds across the water under its wings...you can see a few pairs of legs!

One more.
A crow.
40D 70-200/2.8ii @ 200mm.
Only regret was that the framing was not good --- the tail was not included.

So many great shots on this page 55 ..don't know where to start..Steven, Anand - those owl photos are truly incredible..keep 'em coming!

Got up close 'n personal yesterday with this American Kestrel.  Upon existing the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine, this usually skittish bird allowed me a few quick shots before taking off.  Though all were quite nice, this one is perhaps the best
