Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.

Thank you very much, Robert and Mike!

Beautiful of the sparrow, Robert! I have not seen this one myself, although local birders report sightings from time to time. It is pretty rare in our area.

This is a wonderful, perfectly timed capture, Richard. She appears to be performing an operatic number.

Marvelous image! I love the lighting in this shot .

Post whatever bird photos you like Tom, there is everything posted here from the carefully set up to the random grab, from the carefully posed to the chock full off birdy action and from seasoned veteran birdy togs to the new with a kit type zoom type. There is no critique here just celebration of everyones efforts.

Well that's my opinion anyway! :)

Thanks! I figured it was a Merlin, but every time I try and guess at an ID and put in on the forum, someone will point out I was wrong  :p
