For all of you bird-watchers, here's your opportunity to showcase your flying and feathered beauties. Your entry can show one bird or flocks of them, large birds or tiny ones, sitting on branches, in nests, swimming or flying. Please, no caged or domestic birds which have lost their freedom. And no human females, even if they look like an old turkey or a cute young chick... :-) Macro and close-ups welcome. Size: 1,600px on the longer side of your entry. As this will be a popular challenge, please don't ruffle my feathers. Ensure the size of your entry is correct before entering, and the other rules are met. Disqualified entrants will not be invited to resubmit.
