This is a Nutmeg Mannakin spotted in the tall brush at Newport Beach's Back Bay Eco Reserve.  The bird can't sit still for more than a moment.  He constantly hops from one branch to another.  This is a crop off a JPG original shot in RAW.  Cropped dimensions are 1567x1044.  It's razor sharp.  I'm not so sure I need that 7D anymore.  Specs are ISO 640, 1/1600 and F6.3.

This one was spotted in Laguna Niguel Regional Park.  It is a Common Tern.  Taken with 400mm L 5.6 and cropped to 1556 x 1037 from 5760 x 3840

Wicki..coming form you that is a real compliment thanks.  After much experiment with the 400m on a 7D and 5D I have found the best settings for birds in the sky are: EC +1 to 1 2/3, 1/1600 to 1/2000, Tv priority, ISO 100 the aperture usually ranges between 5.6 and 6.3, Ai Servo and Zone AF.  Zone Af is key but be sure to switch that off if not tracking such a large subject as I've ruined a few butterfly shots recently where Spot Af should have been chosen.  I sometimes alternate between Evaluative metering and Partial metering.  If Partial Metering I don't overexpose as much about 2/3's on EC
Thanks

Great Blue Heron in Dana Point Harbor 6-12-12. It's prey is strangely enough is a ground squirrel who's on its way out (was alive at this point).  Two spectators and myself were quite surprised to see this event unfold as most believed these birds to focus on fish, not ground squirrels.

The Black Crowned Night Heron - Dana Point Harbor, CA 6-12-12

This photo is pretty much untouched except to adjust the white balance which was ever so slightly off.  Basically the image is straight out of the camera. If anyone has their doubts or gripes about what the 5D can't do this ought to keep them quiet :)

While I've never seen it myself, it's cousin the grey heron (similar sort of size) is known to take nesting birds when the opportunity arises. Like many predators, herons are opportunists, so while it's surprising, it isn't completely unexpected that it might take a mammal that was stupid enough to get too close.
