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.

"Where's the fish!"

love the last shot....they are all great, but I particularly love the last one....

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. :)

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.

Anyone know what is the name of this bird? (took the shot a couple of days ago in Goa-India)

Rienz, I'd say lucky is right!  Right place, right time!  Great looking bird, I've never seen one of them before, thanks for posting! :D

Very nice Serendipity!  I wish we had some bulbuls here!  They almost seem like a cross between a cardinal and a wax wing..  Beautiful!

Black Skimmer - Martha's Vineyard
Had to dodge security guards ( yes, security guards on the BEACH !) and hike to a remote spot were this cool bird flew back and forth practically begging to have its picture taken.

60D and 100-400mm - 1/1250 f8, 400mm, ISO 320
Great image Islander!  I can't wait to get back up to the Cape!

Huh! Never thought of them like that! So when the rain abates and the clouds part (not the sea!!!) hopefully they will return to my garden...
