That’s true. I don’t post much here of course. Didn’t see any harm in posting and since it’s the R5 I figured fellow birders here might like the result. Of course the admin can remove it if they want to if I broke a rule on crossposting. I won’t mind one bit.
We birder regulars welcome new posters and encourage you to continue. How about some real flying birds, as we want to know how responsive the R5 is to get focus. Most of us do follow both the the Birds in Flight and Bird Portraits threads so there's no need to post in both.

It was a BIF, albeit coming in for a landing. Is birds in landing a thing? I promise no more cross posting the same photo but since you’re all very patient with me. Here’s another BIL if that’s a thing cheers all

In the USA, especially in the northern states, the Turkey Vulture, can be be called the Turkey Buzzard or simply Buzzard. Here's one using my eye AF with the 100-400mm II on the 5DSR.
thanks for the clarification, so wasn't too far off. We get Turkey vultures here too.. ugly birds, but necessary..

Hi Alan.
I think you may have been meaning :-
The United States and Great Britain are two countries separated by a common language. George Bernard Shaw.

Cheers, Graham.
According to: This supposed quotation doesn't appear anywhere in the copious writing of GBS. A similar idea was expressed by Oscar Wilde in The Canterville Ghost, 1887, some years earlier than Shaw was supposed to have said it:
"We really have everything in common with America nowadays except, of course, language".
