Nothing fancy...but I haven't been out for a while.  Getting some extremely pleasant weather so went into the back yard.  This Downy Woodpeck paid me a visit.

Very nice shot, clbayley.

Here are a few Snowy Owl images from the Friday afternoon. Lighting was perfect and owls were posing, just before sunset! 7D mkii / 500 f4 / 1.4xiii

Beautiful. I really like your pictures.

Well done, jmeyer.

Finally starting to get the winter residents in, though we have have had a lot just pass through.  A Blue Winged Teal decided to paddle by with his mate not far behind.

Larger images on my site.  Always amazed at how trusting some of these are but I think a lot of it has to do with posture and movement towards them.  CPA was eight feet so spent a bit of time observing them with the MK I Eyeball.

Riley, I'd tuck that one in my suitcase.  I bird sat a Greater Sulfur-crested once for a few weeks and he flew onto a hanging lamp and bit right through the wiring - it was turned off at the time!  ;)

You lucky guy!  Isn't amazing what is wild there flying around!

Jack,
these are wild, freely flying all over.
the one for pets are demanding, requiring companionship constantly.  i encountered one at a store which took off my cuff button and effortlessly bit the button into pieces.  can easily chew off a finger!

so, i left australia (3 weeks) and just arrived HongKong, waiting for luggages.
should have a few more bird photo to show, soon!
