Here's a few of mine from today. My Heron friends showed up hungry, so I helped them to a small fish dinner. 7D, 100-400mmL @ 400mm, f/7.1, 1/320-1/500s, handheld.

This juvenile heron late arrival lost out. "No fish for you!" The early bird gets the fish. :)

Also, a common waxbill and a Brazilian cardinal.

Very interesting. That bird looks almost identical to the Western Kingbirds we have here in the US. I think the Prinia has a lighter throat than the Kingbird, but outside of that...they are extremely similar. I'm curious....how big is the Prinia? A Kingbird (western or eastern) is just slightly smaller than an American Robin...I wonder if a Prinia is similar in size.

Approximately 12 to 14 centimetre. I never see a Kingbird or American Robin but i think Kingbird is bigger than Prinia. :)

Aye, Western Kingbird is larger...20-24cm, so almost twice as large. Interesting though, despite that, they almost look identical! :)

Really nice shot of a beautiful bird. We have bulbuls here but they look somewhat different. Thanks for sharing. :)

edit: Here is what they look like in Hawaii.

Was sitting in my yard 2 days ago with my 7D and 100-400mmL, when a cardinal landed near me on our fence. I thought he wanted bread crumbs (I had none). Then he landed not too far from my feet and grabbed a large beetle. I looked up and his mate was intensely watching from the chain link fence. When he took off with his prize, she followed for what I'm sure was a shared meal.
