Fit for fight: A capercaillie - norwegian short name: tiur - followed at our heels yesterday. Tough guy!
Luckily I brought my 5D II with a Tamron 28-200 - old but useful lens.

This girl caught me quite unprepared and I did virtually everything wrong but still got a few half decent shots.
600 was too much, one of the few times I can say that.

Thanks Eldar.  You may have noticed, my stump is being destroyed by vandals! ;)

dpc, you've gotta love the "black" birds when the lighting is right! Beautiful.

Indeed! Nice magpie shot. The magpie is one bird I just haven't been able to get a shot of. We have scads of them out in the country around here, fewer in town, but I haven't been able to zero in on one with my camera. They're way too skittish.

dpc, well, there is a way. 

Just find where they are nesting in scrub willow.  While they are extremely warry, when they have young they are the most dedicated parents and will stay very close. 

I have a compost where they regularly find scraps but they still fly when I'm over 100 feet away so I've had exactly the challenge you've had.  Plus they've never been high on my list of favorite birds! ;)
