Here's a couple wifey got yesterday. After she spotted a pair of Crested Caracara, they were "escorted" off by a pair of Scissortails.

We don't often see these guys in the Dallas area, but we saw a flock yesterday.

No love for the Caracara.... They seemed to have escaped the wrath of the Scissortail & came back around only to be met by Black Necked Stilts... Shots aren't that great, but it's part of the story of the day.

I appreciate the feedback. I’ve always found it difficult adjusting in rapidly changing conditions. It’s getting better with practice though. I do usually shoot in aperture priority or manual if conditions are relatively constant.

The reason I choose manual mode most of the time is because in true manual mode (no auto ISO) your bird can go from blue sky to wooded background for example, and the exposures will be correct for both situations, as long as the bird remains in the same light. I used to shoot aperture mode all the time, but now I find manual mode so much more convenient and accurate (exposure wise).

Thanks Shalu.
I believe they're Sandwich Terns.
The tips of their beaks are yellow.
Happy trails.
