And just one more of from the chickadee series. I wasn't sure what this was they were taking out of the nest. Our internet research tells us this is a mucas-coated sack of baby chickadee poop. And I thought diapers were rough. I never had to carry one of those in my mouth.

Wow Steve! Way to show us all up making that ZD 50-200 SWD work for swallows! I can't get anywhere near to getting mine 50-200 mk1 to focus fast enough for barn swallows in the fields around here. Now I have to go try harder 😝
Catching swallows in flight is so hard! I have tried it for years and I was just lucky that these guys flew in so low. I lay on the ground about 15 meters in front of the puddle and waited for them to return, prefocusing on the puddle. The first images aren't as sharp as the last two, so probably the 50-200 SWD isn't the perfect instrument for fast moving birds like these.

I've been watching this hawk and it's nest the past few weeks. Typically I stand on the opposite cliff side with the 100-400 but yesterday I got impatient because it's been a couple of days and I haven't seen mama hawk. So I walked down the canyon to go take seascapes and of course who shows up? Luckily I had the 35-100 on and on the em1iii I have a fn button to switch to BIF mode instantly. Shooting at f2.8 was a nice change. Heavily cropped...

Couple from today's photo hike in search of more warblers. Not much luck, but my first ever Ovenbird in the initial pic.
