    Living here in Corpus Christi, we see ALOT of birds. I was wondering how the birds look like in your neck of the woods? Post some pictures!

    I found her nesting in backyard earlier today.

    I took this one a year ago, but I was in Alaska. I took this with my old FZ50 by the way. and a 1.7 Tcon.

    also be nice to know with what they were taken, as EXIF isn't available for many (not for me right-clicking in Opera anyway)

    Hello, recently I am enjoying visiting this forum becos of the Nature pics that were posted - lots of beautiful images of birds, flowers, dragonfly etc.
    Here is one of my birdie pic to share. C&C are most welcome - only sure way to improve.

    This is my first posting here and not very sure how to go about doing that. Am using the [​IMG] to link to my Flickr account.
    1. Am sure there are better ways of doing this.
    2. How best to import Exif data as well?
    Thanking in advanced for your help.

    A 5.6 , S 1/100, F 150mm, ISO 200, GH1, PL 14-150mm lens.

    Aside to Boyzo
    Finally got here and sorry it took me so long! :smile:

    ZD 50-200 Mk1 in MF (It is actually quite slow in AF, slower than 70-300). I'll try and add the details to the original post...

    As I say, they are often around the yard here, as we live in a 'bushy' area. I have to admit to putting out a little birdseed for them now and again (except for the Kookaburra, who is a meat-eater - he likes lizards, snakes, and I can't supply those easily :biggrin:). We are also lucky enough to have a bird-friendly cat :thumbup:

    wow there are some stunning photos here, and all of the birds posted are so interesting, kind of makes mine look boring, but nevertheless i've got one to share ;-)

    The little fellow paused for a few seconds as if he was posing for me, shot with the 14-140mm on my G1

    I snapped this picture this morning. They are generally pretty skittish and won't sit still for a portrait. I could see them from my back porch and had to walk a 1/4 mile to get close to them and all the while they are just sitting in the tree looking at me. Big as an eagle, but generally only eat dead animals. They are every where here and are very graceful in the air. They get run over by cars all the time because they are slow to get air born from the ground since they are so big. Known around here as turkey buzzards or turkey vultures because they are as big as a turkey.:biggrin:
