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

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!! I was happy to get this pose today. 6D 300 640th F10 ISO 1250Jack
