Nice captures with good light. The birds without the characteristic pelican bills look a lot like White Ibis but the bill is straight.

Thanks Charles :-)

I have a long though past few days regarding upcoming traveling lenses setup. I end up with 17-40L and 28-300L combo, which I can cover almost everything :D

That sounds like a great combo X_Tan. One of these days I will add a "good" shorter lens to the mix but for now the 18-55 or 18-135 will have to do for close quarters. I'm seriously considering the 100-400L for wildlife though.

Meeko, it sorta looks like I am becoming a wildlife fanatic. In actuality kayaking has encouraged that. I like shooting landscapes at twilight which means tripod not kayak. So I catch wildlife during the day from the kayak and landscapes from land in the evening. I just seem to have done more kayaking lately. It makes me feel like a kid again and I'm loving it.

Meeko, how is your shoulder doing? We need help keeping the thread going! ;)

I'm picking up a 400 f/5.6L next few days instead; I just got x1.4 and x2 Extender already.

Also I found out the reason that 28-300L can't take Canon Extender: 28-300L rear element is just not 'deep' enough for any of the Canon Extender.

@charles: thanks, shoulder is doing great but I haven't used this lens in a long time. it's just collecting dust on the shelf, I've been using my canon fisheye lately!

I'll start using it again in the summertime when the birds come back into Central Park!

X_Tan, enjoy your family, travelling and you new 400 f/5.6. Your are making me even more jealous!

This image is best viewed at X3. Click on the image and select X3. It is heavily cropped but I think it is pretty sharp for 300mm f/5.6. 100% crop looks even better as far as overlapping feathers.
