Just a few shots from today. Weather was awful but still enjoyed it. Then a Killdeer from a few days ago.

Nice shots what lens did you used and how close were you to the subject. I always see red wing blackbird Juanita bay the other day I saw one right in my bird feeder. Really cool.

Sigma bigmos. The blackbirds were about 10-15' away I'd really like to get one in flight coming towards me I think the colors on the wings are awesome. The Turkey Vulture was pretty far away then I cropped it down, I'd like to get a closer shot on a nicer day and get more detail.

Good shots. It's hard to get detail on the Blackbirds unless you have a day with good light, nice feather detail on the wings.
As for no one replying, not at all. I usually find a ratio of anything up to 20 views per 1 reply is typical, many people just want to look and won't comment however technically good and/or interesting a post is, that all adds to the 'views' tally.

Yes it is. There is a farm down the road from the park and there were probably ten of them some flying some in the trees and two on the ground. I drove by and had to turn around and snag a few pictures.

Nice series. The Turkey Vulture crop held up very well.

Very nice shots, I would love to catch a turkey vulture when it's on the ground and within camera range.

Very nice on the Killdeer! I have one in the yard guarding eggs. Just waiting for them to hatch any day now and will post. Good job.
