Stay alert, control the camera, save photos

Nice shots.If photos in walk-in aviaries are allowed, I'll show why I love Java Sparrows from my seeing them close up in Hong Kong aviary. They are so cute. The HK aviary is huge and high as it goes down a hill in the park, allowing the birds a large space in which to fly. I used a bridge camera for these.
The KL one is much, much larger with far more birds. It claims to be the largest in the world. It's good for Bulbuls amongst others. Bridge camera again as the full size kit is a bit too conspicuous in these public areas.Nice shots.
The aviary sounds very much like the one just outside KualaLumpur (though from what I can tell, the one in K-L is larger) - very well worth a visit if you are in Malaysia.
"No matter which eye I look at that human, he's got this long thing pointing at me"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

Impressive indeed; its wingspan didn't even fit the framing of your pictureGot this shot of a Shy Albatross the other day just after it had finished feasting on a dead cuttlefish. Not the biggest of the Albatross family but still boasts an impressive wingspan of a touch over 2.5m
