Currawongs have taken over our village, and I'm really rather fond of them. Heavily edited because I took this during overcast pre-sunset and the IQ was rubbish, but I (mostly)liked the outcome.

A jenny wren was flitting around my F20 Scat, and I was pleased to get her on camera.

Another lousy-IQ shot, but this little fledgling New Holland eater was in deep shade.

I find it maddening to get a good shot of Red Wing Black Birds. They are so black it's hard to get any detail out of them even when conditions are bright, and in low light they force high ISO's and long shutter speeds. To top it all off they will then let out the most irritating squawk as if they realize they're driving you nuts.

I know the feeling, I love this small black birds because they have very interesting behavior and habits but very difficult to photograph. I use Spot Metering Highlight to make sure the camera ignores EVERYTHING but the light on the focus point. Works great in almost any light condition but you can see some extreme pushes in the EV, like ISO 6.400 (max. Auto ISO) or ISO 64 (min. Auto ISO ) and sometimes these 2 settings withing seconds of each other if the light changes extremely quickly (like very sunny with sometimes small clouds under foliage or forest conditions).
