Hi

The first one is my favorite, very well done.

Astonishing quality that you get here with that combo.

Cheers

Emilio

Excellent! So you used the tripod, the images are sharply focused. How far away are the birds?

As usual ---- 70-300 + ec14. I need better light and closer distance to get acceptable BIF photos.

Nice pictures, as always,,  This reminds me that it is time to visit the Wheeler WLR as it's about time that the cranes reached our state....

I really like that crane in flight ...  I'm going to look for some cranes next week if the sun comes out but I'll never get this close at the WLR....

Nice shots...  It must be nice.. The only time I'm likely to see a parrot he'll be sitting in a store or in a rare moment when one escapes the captivity of some cage and stops by the yard..

That last one only stayed long enough for this one picture,,, He wasn't comfortable with where I was sitting, I guess..  The others tolerated me and accept me as one of the obstacles they have to watch...

In reply to joeletx, Jan 5, 2014

Nice...  I identified my picture as a Pine Warbler because of the beak ..... yours seems to have a different beak and the black cap makes me think it is a male gold finch,, I have to admit that goldfinches, warblers and vireos are so similar in size and color that I really need a ornithologist here to keep me straight...
