And a New Life Begins!

Decided to visit Mommy Avocet this afternoon to see if her eggs has already hatches, low & behold I found these 2 little buggers walking around. Sorry, I took this snap with my Nikon D300 + 300mm f/4 with 1.4 tc from such a far distance. This is about 50% of the frame & a very harsh lighting condition. Just wanted to share!

Link to a much bigger snap.

Re: Feeding right

Very good shots, Gautam! I see this interaction a lot from my own bird feeder, Wife & I always enjoy when they do this as there's plenty enough seeds for everyone.

Birds, large and small...

Mostly from 2007 since I couldn't get out this week. All but the last two with the 1DII and 100-400 with Canon 1.4TC. Last two with 40D and 100-400.

Yellow Rumped Warbler

Hence the name

Yellow Crowned Night Heron

Red Shouldered Hawk

Twilight Visitor

Roseate Spoonbill

An excellent lens lasts a lifetime, an excellent DSLR, not so long.
