I finally finished going through all my photos from the two weeks in Florida. Here are a few Burrowing Owls from Cape Coral. 7D mkii / EF 500 f4 / 1.4xiii

Very nice series Jeremy,
Third to fifth pictures trigger the imagination - several funny story ideas come to mind (what is he telling his audience, aloof and self-righteous ;))

Nice photos Jeremy! I don't know if it's tired or just has a lot to say. Maybe both! :geek:

Nice shot Alan. Usually the only raptors we have around where I live are Cooper's hawks, and they are quite shy. Yesterday I got a shot of Europe's infamous transplant to North America, the Starling. I got a look into the mouth and it was as disgusting as most of us find the rest of the bird. :oops: I am sure they have some redeeming quality, my wife and I just haven't found it yet. :)
Wowww..!!! So beautiful bird! I have never seen this bird! I love its colors! Thank you so much for sharing this photo! :)

Nice photo Alan. Add some snow, mud and a cold rain and that could have been shot in my neighbourhood. Also, I would need a green sandpiper . :geek:

If you are ever silly enough to go to Ottawa, you can find them in several spots downtown.
When I was about 6, birds of Canada cards were contained in my mother's tea purchases and this one became imprinted in my brain; oh how I wanted to see it. Alas, our travels were not very far from home and I'm not sure any ever show up around Edmonton anyway.

I guess I could come to honour our PM and visit parliament and then secondarily go looking for ducks to shoot. Guess which would be the highlight of the trip.;)

Here are a few for you from near my place. The female is not quite as colourful as the male....
