We spent part of the last week of 2013 near "Dog Beach" in San Diego along the estuary of the San Diego River. Thus besides letting our dog run on the beach, just a hundred or so yards away we were able to observe some bird life. camera is E-pl1, lens is panasonic 45-200

Snowy Egret

Fishing from dry land

Not sure of name for this one

Glad to see that you are back!

Thought maybe the forum blues got you down.  Anyway, nice pics.  The 90-250 is working great for me with the EM-1.  Just ok for BIFs, stellar for more stationary birds, however. Focus peaking is really great. Stay away from the lions. Jeff

Nice pics.  Have you tried focus peaking.  You can really nail down precise focusing (like eyeballs) with it.  Jeff

A nice set Collin.  Like the chicks and the small birds but the first two shots of the flock in flight are very nice as well.

Very good Peter, I like the first pelican in flight shot best. They are always good fun to shoot.

Cheers

I like all three quite a lot. The first looks like an a cappella singing trio performing for the camera. Nice set.

Excellent stuff as usual Collin. Love the ostrich chicks and the juvenile flycatcher. Looks like the 150 +EC2 works well with the E-30.

Cheers

Nice set. I really like the two shots of the sparrows on the wire. Nice sharp detail & nicely composed.  The last one is very nice too.

Nice gull shots. Aren't you glad you don't have to stand on ice in your bare feet all day?
