Greatspotted cuckoo, Portugal.

Nicely done, Alan.   :)

I wonder how many click on the photo to see it's true quality.  Impressive.

I have juncos by the dozens - counted over 20 at one time, and little else other than my woodpecker, but here I caught a junco telling a sparrow to get lost (definitely not kissing).  Shooting stills I only had 1/1250 with 800mm, not enough - always fighting the speed vs. ISO battle.

Great photos Jack.  The wingtip blur adds life to the photo, showing the movement.

A neat couple of shots there, Jack. What ISO was it? Was the photo cropped heavily?

Thanks.  About 1/2 the frame and ISO 1250 with so so side lighting.  Working in the house on my floor, I take a break by grabbing the camera and shooting out a window so the lighting is always compromised but not as bad as mid-winter.
