- did you tried to ID this with your program? "I know sparrows aren’t exciting..."Just arrived in Rome on our first foreign travel for over two years. Brought the R5 + RF 100-400 with, and couldn’t resist taking a shot of a Sparrow. I know sparrows aren’t exciting but the first foreign bird in over two years is! And he is a very handsome Italian one (processed on my iPad). View attachment 203436
Thanks for those details. I sure they’ll help with my future avian portrait sessions.Thanks Guy's, I use the canon EF100-400 mk2 with RF adapter, on the R6. In these images with the 1.4 teleconverter attached to aid flight shots that interest me most. The Puffin was at 560mm taken at probably 4M+ and the Razorbill at 189mm taken using the flip screen as the camera was held looking down over a wall with the bird sitting directly below, minimal cropping only to assist composition. As long as you sit quietly the birds are very confiding and behave normally.
I'm glad too that you are off for two weeks. Beautiful photos of interesting bird!Another rare bird this morning, White-eyed Vireo! It has just been an unbelievable spring so far, and now it looks like the weather is finally going to cooperate for the next week. The next 5 days should be insane here! Glad I'm off for 2 weeks!

Great shot!!!Close encounters with a Peregrine which landed in front of me on the riverbank. Spent about twenty minutes learning the fine art of plucking Mourning Dove feathers while having a Forster's Tern dive bomb the falcon incessantly. Eventually the crop was full and it carried off about half the carcass, albeit slowly.
