    This Snowy Owl has been hanging around the airport for a little over a month, but has been hard to locate. Saturday morning, she was sitting in the grass, near the road. Doesn't get much better for a view of an owl! 7D Mkll / EF500 F4 / 1.4xlll Jeremy

    We have a Varied Thrush visiting our state, roughly 4 hours to the northwest of me. I took a road trip yesterday, and visited a few areas in that part of the state. I got to the area of the thrush, about 20 minutes before sunrise. It was still very dark, and even after sunrise, lighting was...

    Received a tip this morning, that the Long-eared Owls might be back at a previous roosting site. I walked around the area, but couldn't find them. Found fresh signs of them, but because it's a high traffic area for dog walkers, there's a good chance a dog flushed them out. I will check again at...

    My copy of the 100-400mm ll is extremely sharp wide open with the 1.4x Ill! I was really surprised, I thought I would need to stop down to f/9, but I don't. It is sharper than all of the 3rd party 600mm lenses. I bought the 100-400 because of how much you talked about it. I picked it up early...

    We've had a Carolina Wren hanging around a local park for a couple months. Yesterday, I was out and he was very cooperative. It's not rare or anything, rather not very common. 7D mkll / EF500 f4 / 1.4xlll Jeremy

    It's been awhile for me posting, I've been out every day after work since the end of August, chasing the fall warblers around. It is pretty much wrapped up now, even though yesterday I still had 11 warbler species, 4 of which were considered late. Fall warbler migration is extremely hard to...

    Thank you Jack! Thank you Graham! They are my favorite, and I look forward to the 3 weeks in spring and fall that I get up to 40 different species passing through my area. I use all my free time out in the woods watching these guys! Some of them will come within 1' of me. It's so relaxing and...

    I basically bought the lens because of how much Alan has raved about it. I wanted it for butterflies in the summer and I knew it would work for birds in the spring, when they're really close in some of the parks. I've used it for butterflies at the minimum distance with the extender, shooting at...
