The juvenile Robin has speckled buff-brown upper parts and underparts. They can look so different to their parents with their bright red breasts.

I spent all Saturday looking for Nightjars in known Nightjar territory. I was absolutely exhausted carrying around my gear through heavy dense forests. I had no luck but unexpectedly did find a few hawfinches.

Composition of this is so good, with the pose on that huge chunk of wood making a very good photograph.
Not the prettiest of birds, but.... Well done.

Many thanks for your very kind, encouraging compliment, Richard.

Fitting perch for this vulture, Mike, right out of an old west movie.

Ha, ha...It is kinda of "old west" looking now that you mention it. Thank you Matt.

A-number-1 close-up shot, Sean. Very sharp with great detail.

Striking green heron close-up, Mike.

Super Ibis shot, Ted. It stands out so vividly and really looks alive.

It's hard enough getting a shot of a bittern, let alone, getting one feeding, Paul. Really nicely done.

Thanks Mike! It's scorching hot in Scottsdale now so I'm heading north today to continue the "hunt".
