I was at Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve in Hillsboro, OR over the weekend and saw this killdeer nest practically on the trail. The mother bird made a huge racket with the broken wing routine and I almost didn't see the nest, it was so well camouflaged!

Hope you like it!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks, Eric!

Here are some more from Jackson Bottom Wetlands ... need some ID help. I think the 1st two are of a savannah sparrow and the 3rd one is a house finch. Please let me know if I got them wrong.

I've been getting better at shots of the more skittish smaller birds with more keepers, mainly by upping the shutter speed a bit and getting better with hand holding my 100-400 steadily. Comments and advice on my shots and how to get better are always welcome!

Savannah Sparrow?

Wow, nice wave!

Here are a couple of GBH shots from Commonwealth Lake in Beaverton OR.... it was about 7:30pm in the evening, so I had to shoot at 1600 ISO.

Apologies for following up with this post after almost 4 weeks, have been busy with a lot of personal stuff, so don't visit here much these days.

From a recent visit to Kanha Kisli National Park in Central India... was unfortunate twice on this trip, missed both a Tiger and a Leopard sighting by a matter of minutes!!

=Cap'n Fishy;15890822]I'm guessing - possibly a species of roller?

I just noticed while cleaning the front lens that there's some speck of dust inside. Is this why the nickname the "dust pump?" I'm sure it's nothing to worry about for now :(

it's nothing to worry about at all, let alone now.

Edit: unless your speck of dust is the shape of a bird poking out of a tree trunk!
