Western Kingbird, natural perch, taken hand held with my new 600mm f/4 L IS II. This was, if you can believe it, the FIRST shot (or one from the first series of shots) taken with the new lens.  ;D

One of our local parks has several pairs of Black Necked Stilts that nested and are in the process of raising the chicks on the eastern lake.  Due to the lack of rain in SoCal so far this year, the lake is drying faster than usual but that presented me the opportunity to trudge through the mud behind a large reed bank to observe a pair of Stilt chicks and the parents foraging.  I also discovered where the mud is less stable, after sinking nearly up to my knees.

Awesome. I like the reflection in the water. Nicely done.

Beautiful. The 600 f4 L IS II is a great lens.  8)

Fantastic shot! Love that little cluster of legs. :D

Fledgling Cooper's Hawk with snack.  There's a nest near our home and four chicks have fledged within the past few days.  They're like rambunctious kids at Chuck-ee Cheese, yelling, running around, and demanding that their parents attend to them.  The parents are hunting nonstop, but these little monsters have enormous appetites.

Very nice jrista. The more I see these pic's, the more I can "justify" my plan to buy a 600mm f4 ;)

Thanks all!

Mr Bean, this was using a 5D MK III w/ a 600 f/4L v1 lens plus a 1.4TC V3.  1/640 : f/9 : ISO 400.  Apologize for not putting the specs up.  I keep forgetting that when I post a linked image it doesn't have the same options for size and EXIF data viewing as seen on my smugmug site.

Steven Kessel - Really like the shots of the Cooper's!
