Yes v nice.  Funny, in my limited exposure of about one month I never saw the eagles fighting over food.  On the ground they just waited in line very politely. :)

Beautiful ryananthony.  I have been reading all the stuff about the superiority of Nikon for BIF instead of logging to my favourite threads.  It does seem that we can squeeze something out of our inadequate gear, or at least you can.

I've now looked at their exifs.  Which of the 150-600mms are you using?

Awesome Ryan, is there a forth Eagle in that mix up? trying to figure out the one tail feather set and wing coming down out of the mix up. Stunning shot!

Not a tracked shot requiring skill, but it's flight. ;)

Thanks for the very kind words everyone. I appreciate it.

Proof that not all canadians (birds) are as polite as people think. :)

Beautiful ryananthony.  I have been reading all the stuff about the superiority of Nikon for BIF instead of logging to my favourite threads.  It does seem that we can squeeze something out of our inadequate gear, or at least you can.

Thank you. Funny enough, Im picking up a D500 and 300PF this weekend, in hopes it will be a very small packaged birding set up for the wife. Also to test the Nikon waters (no relation to this Artie thread) perhaps I will share a few Nikon images in the coming months.

As to your question, I am using the Sigma Contemporary. Over all I enjoy, but the image stabilizer is not very good.

Awesome Ryan, is there a forth Eagle in that mix up? trying to figure out the one tail feather set and wing coming down out of the mix up. Stunning shot!

I only remembered three, but you're right, the tail feather looks very strange, and caused me to double check. Turns out they are pretty flexible.

Viper28, I like the first picture a lot. The other birds add excitement to me.

A few more images of Northern Harriers.
