Wow - there are some truly amazing photos in this thread..if you like to shoot birds but are not familiar with their name (proper or otherwise) try using http://www.whatbird.com it has an excellent built in wizard

Here's a few I shot over the past 6 months - all photos shot in the wild - no zoo or otherwise with 7D + 400mm hand held:

Belted Kingfisher (difficult to capture..you get anywhere near these birds they fly about 100 yards away.  You go that direction they revert back to original starting point.  I had to creep up and hide to nab this one..oh the fun!

I took the following at Great Falls National Park, Virginia side.  A lot of stalking went into taking these photos.  I found this really awesome spot that gave me all 3 of these pictures and more.  Shot with canon 5D II and 100-400 L.

I wish I knew why a sparrow will sit on a bird feeder for half an hour, but a cardinal won't stay more than half a minute. 

When I saw him, he and his female mate were both right there perfectly positioned.  While I grabbed the camera and changed lenses, Mrs. Cardinal took off.  This was the only shot I got with the whole bird in the frame and in focus.

Now every time it snows I stalk back and forth past this window, but no more luck since then.

Amazing shots.

I was out this weekend shooting and it is soooo hard to track and shoot with this precision, let alone get such great exposure.

Great for you!
