Marbled Godwit - Martha's Vineyard Oct 13
60D and 100-400 handheld in high wind.
f/6.3 ISO200 1/1600

We see very few of these, quite a treat for local birders. This one seems to be in no hurry to move south.

Here's a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk in flight.

5Diii, 400DO.
Shots like that make it all worthwhile!

Same bird, different background. Same shooting data.
Cool! 

Nice shots of Harry and I had to laugh at the running 'water chicken', serendipidy.

Need to spend more time here but if I'm not at work, I'm generally out trying to find something interesting to shoot.  Some really great shots being posted by everyone.

One of the spots I visit a lot has a Black Phoebe that does not seem to mind being photographed.  Now if I could just get more subjects to sit calmly for their 'portraits'.  EXIF

Beautiful shot ERHP. Sharp, and I like the background colors.

This is extremely rare: a leucistic water rail. Leucism is a form of albinism where a bird is partly white. The mutants don't usually survive long because they are so visible to predators. Leuco here survives by hiding in the reeds and avoiding open water. He appeared in a flash and was gone, but the 5DIII with the 300mm f/2.8 + 2xTC was quickly swung into action and locked on. This is a 100% crop, with the reeds meant to look like his cage that protects him.

Boy we seem to be attracting very able bird photographers to this thread - beautiful shots of late - if only I could finish my deck and get out shooting again.  This thread is TOO motivational!! ;)

Forgive me but she wandered into my yard when it was almost too dark to work (ISO 12500) so I chased a few hundred yards around in a circle and she smiled for me.  Not a bird but my only shots of the week! ;D
