Been watching The Life of Birds documentary by the BBC, and so was happy to see Gary's "Love Dance" and Steven's heron fetching nest-building materials :)  Timely and well-executed captures one can only dream about.

Here's a Brown Shrike from day 2 of practicing with my Tamron at 600mm on 6D, f 8, 1/320, ISO 640 handheld (some cropping, sharpening, tweaking contrast, as the mid-afternoon side light was still a bit harsh):

Perched Brown Shrike

PS: BTW, for the sake of educating new birders like me, please do try to ID the birds posted -- thanks.

wow...at 600mm and 1/320th, handheld?   i could never get a shot that sharp at 1/320 and 600mm if hand held.

nice shot!

WOW, again thanks to all for the great shots.  Don, at least you have someone playing in the white stuff.  I'm still emulating Seridipidy with my CarlTN's "common folk" tricked into posing.

However, I now have a bunch of old blankets sewn into a hanging blind suspended from my deck canopy.  Tripod set up, props nicely placed, book in hand reading while sitting on a lawn chair with electric heater at my feet!! ;D

I was happy to get this pose today.

Hi Jack,

Really beautiful close-up. Well done. We don't have woodpeckers here.

Hey guys!

I'd like to share my 1st bird portrait on this lovely forum with you.
A little hummingbird, shot in Costa Rica a few weeks ago.

Tech specs:
Canon EOS 70D - EF100-400mm @400mm - 1/400 sec - f/7,1 - ISO 640

I'm curious for your feedback!  ;)

Beautiful photo! Gorgeous color, sharp image and creamy bokeh. I love hummers but we don't have any here in Hawaii.

Thanks Serindidpidy.  No woodpeckers, like NONE!?

Well then that's excuse for me to post another just for you! ;)  My Downy is at least as tame as Harry.

In the hand with a 60D and a 17-55 at 40mm...

...But certainly not as tame as Don's nuthatch!  WOW. But maybe I can change that :(

Bottom's up!  I have a grand total of three birds I can post but that'll be changing soon - I HOPE.
