Tawny Frogmouth.
On a hot summers day (43.2c at last count) I spotted this guy/gal trying to keep out of the heat. I've heard it at night in my garden, and there's the tell tale signs of their droppings around the veggie garden.
5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC.


Love the Image, well done, and in that heat, very well done.

January 03rd My Family & I drove through a place in Queensland Australia called Birdsville (no kidding, that's what they named the Town), we had to stop for fuel as the next fuel was a light year away, 45.1c, and later in the day they recorded 48c, only melted tough people live here.

I managed to take no Images anywhere near Birdsville, I was worried the 1Dx would burst into Flames.

Grey-throated  Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) by  alabang, on Flickr

The  Grey-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes griseigularis) is a species of  bird  in the Nectariniidae family. It is found in a wide range of  semi-open  wooded habitats in the northern and eastern part of the  Philippines. It  is often considered a subspecies of the Brown-throated  Sunbird, but  the two differ consistently in measurements and plumage,  and there is  no evidence of intergradation between them.[1] It has not  been rated by  BirdLife International (and consequently IUCN), but is  generally  common and therefore unlikely to be threatened.

Had the "Invasion of the Bushtits!" today. Huge horde of them blasted through a few times, giving me some opportunities to photograph these hilarious little fuzzballs. The light was terrible, as it was overcast and snowing...and the 7D utterly sucks in this kind of light. But, the birds were fun!





Read the whole story of the invasion at my blog.

Very nice pics Jon, and very interesting story on your blog ... for some reason, the first time I read the first line of your post, I read it as: "Invastion of the Bull$hits today. Huge horde of them ba$tards ..."  ;D
