7D, EF 100mm f/2.8
I just started doing birds and I'm gona say right up front.  It took a hell of a lot of Ninja skills to get this close to this bird.

Just got a 100L Macro and wish I could take all my bird photos with it (or conversely, afford something longer and F/2.8 )
(captive birds)

A Darter (Anhinga Melanogaster), also known as Shag Bird or Snake Bird and very similar to the Australian Cormorant, shot at sunrise at Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River, Sydney, with a Canon EOS 10D (before I had it converted to shoot IR) and a Canon EF 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 DO IS lens at 140mm, ISO 100, f4.5 at 1/60 second. Processed in CS5 using Colour Efex Pro 4.

That's a great picture; totaly lacks the "digital signature " of higher mp cameras that followed. Think you've got to be in 5Dmk3 or 1D x to get that smoothness now !

Like it !  :)

Chauncey, #3 is especially nice with the Egret still having the fish in it's bill... I really like the first 3, very well done, #3 is my favorite though!   ;D

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

That's a great one Rev!  The Kestrels are so fast & furious!  Nice image!
