I just dipped my toe into birds and wild-life, I am mainly into landscapes. I don't even know the names of most birds. Please feel free to ID and critique. So many talented wildlife photographers here and mind-blowing shots.

Nice one. That will be a female Ruddy Shelduck.

Excellent shot, and sharp as a tack. That pose is great for the close-up shot you got.

Thanks for the comments!

I saw something really odd. This time, the baby grebe REFUSED to eat the fish offered by its parent. The parent tried many times, the baby just would not eat it! I have never seen this before.
