Love those Greater Sulfur Creasted - babysat one for a couple weeks once.  Destructive aren't they!! ;)

A sunbird with my trusty 100-400 which is way much sharper on my 5D3 than my 6D and 600D.

Totally agree. Had the same feeling when switched to 5DM3 from 7D.

Very nice, the autofocus did a great job of ignoring the leaves just in front of the bird.

PS - Location ?

Thanks, the location is India ... foothills of the Himalayas.

The 5D3 AF is indeed a thing to rave about. So very often I take it for granted but when shooting with a different camera, I realise just how good it is.  :)

Andy_Hodapp,

It must be exciting to have the opportunity.  I rarely see an eagle and then only golden.  Bet you were wishing you had a longer lens or could get closer!

Just pulled up the thread and wow - incredible shots by everyone!  We really have a great bunch of bird photographers on CR and each time I click on this thread I'm amazed by what I see.  I went to my usual haunt this weekend and once again spied some black-crowned night herons - still not as tame as 'Harry', but these two let me approach a bit closer:

Very nice mack

Very lucky with this little guy.  He did not mind me being this close to him to take his photo.

Here is a favorite of mine.  It is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk, photographed with a Canon 7D, a Sigma 50-500mm OS lens, a Sigma 2x teleconverter, and a Sigma 1.4x teleconverter.  (Yeah.  I know.  I probably shouldn't be stacking teleconverters.)  This photo is as I took it, without any processing.
