    Bad exposure/poor quality got you. That's a kingfisher with the GBH. Look again and I'm sure you'll see it.

    I didn't have a clue what the last one was!

    Here's a nice birdie

    Canon 200mm/f2.8 - the lens I sold and never should have. I miss it.

    Handheld - I was able to lean on a telephone pole. The closeups are crops.

    Re: Here's a nice birdie

    Story that goes with this one. I was on the phone and I glanced out my window - and there perched on the Hollyberry tree was a hawk. I knew if he saw me, he would probably bolt. I quietly grabbed my camera, put on the long lens and slowly opened the window - then the screen. As soon as I opened the screen, Molly the Cat must have seen the bird. She immediately tried to get in the open window, so I had to close the screen. So here I was, camera in very shakey hands - trying to hold Molly back, stay quiet and snap some pictures before the hawk took off. I was able to get about 7-8 photos before he flew away. However, they are quite soft - probably from camera shake with all the commotion - and I shot them on "auto" because I had no time to play around with settings. Also - I think these were shot through the screen.

    I included Molly the Culprit. Altho she probably would have been the victim.

    Liz, I actually got 2 wrong. Not to make excuses, but they were distant bird images and nobody is perfect anyway ;)

    The bird on the pole is a redtailed hawk and the holly bird is either a cooper's or sharp shinned hawk.

    I will go with cooper's hawk due to heavy body(though fluffed up) and head position.

    I am 99% sure about the cooper's hawk ID as the tip of the tail, nape of the neck and a few other suttle differences are all that seperates a perched cooper's from a perched sharp shinned FLIGHT images are much easier, but still a very hard ID ;)

    correct you are!!!!

    Hyacinth macaws , as with most macaws, are HIGHLY ENDANGERED in the wild due to the pet trade.

    I just searched the web and found a pair in oklahoma for only $22k if anyone is interested ;)

    A couple shots from today, I think I have them both figured out. I have more problems with yellow birds and the second bird I know I've never seen it before but then I'm pretty new at this.

    POST any image(good or bad) as long as there is some detail to the bird. TELL ME ... WHERE and WHEN also

    HERE is a goose hybrid from may 5th 2003

    It is a greater white fronted/ canada goose hybrid
