Nice shot Sibil. I don't recognize the species. :oops:

Looks like a towhee.

Just glorious, Jan. Fabulous shot of a fabulous bird. Did I say you should publish a book of your birds?

Great shots, Shalu. You certainly get some of the best shots of birds devouring their prey. It requires a lot of patience.

Thank you for the compliment, Mike! It does require a lot of patience waiting for actions to happen. I love shooting birds doing 3 things: eating, fighting or mating. If doing those 3 at the same time, the best, :-P:lol: :p

These 'dinner table' shots are amazing.
You certainly line them up.
Light is very nice
