    Birds are a little out of my comfort zone they're usually a little to quick for me
    but chasing my 3 year daughter around with a camera has helped.

    Here are a couple of mine. I am still trying to get the hang of shooting birds. I seem to end up a few good ones and a bunch of bad ones.

    Gotta love birds...being in Florida for the winter, one of my favorites are the flamingos. The color is so rich and the feathers so subtle. Fun to capture!

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Barn Owl. Part of a bird show hence the relative close up.

    A few Red Kite photos taken in Mid-Wales at the weekend. These are all wild birds which are attracted to a particular farm where the farmer has been putting out meat for them for many years. In the winter there can be as many as 400 Kites but this time of year it's just those who are breeding locally plus probably a few non-breeders, about 20 birds. All with the E-510, 50-200 and EC-14, C-AF, IS off.

    I see eagles almost everyday on my drive to the farm. One day this one was "right there", and I had to take his picture. He's looking for dinner for his mate who's on the nest right now.

    The Mourning Dove just happened to be right outside my back door one afternoon, and I managed to get one shot before it left.

    The last one was a real treat - dozens of American White Pelicans gathered in a little pond by the road. I cropped out houses in the background and some water in the foreground to focus more on the birds, and to give it an "in the middle of the wetlands" look.

    Barn Swallows at home.
    E-510, 70-300 @ 300, flash manual setting ala Ben
    Minimal noise reduction and sharpening.
    Its kidding time on the farm and I'm in and out of the barn a lot the last couple of days. There are so many swallows in the barn I have to duck when I enter so they don't run into me.
    The url's are to larger versions.

    Here's my contribution. I don't know what he is. I was sitting under the shade tree yesterday and he was hopping around in the branches making a "chit chit" noise, no singing.

    p.s. I think I've identified him as a Sage Thrasher.
    Update: It's a Brown Thrasher.
