#itlookslikeyouredoing​justfinetome! :)

Really, super great captures.

I tried to get a photo of a starling yesterday with a worm and failed. And it wasn’t moving! :)

Very best.

:lol::lol:

Thanks very much!

Slow compared to what lens? It certainly looks good

Thanks. It was a bit frustrating compared to my other (former) Canon 100-400L but then it's reach challenged. Certainly, my 70-200L f/2.8 is a lot faster and I'm sure those Canon long primes are much faster, as well. But this would do. I can't afford a $10K glass. Understanding bird behaviors certainly helped in preparing for the shots.

This Starling is driving me mad! It is making a nest under the tiles of next doors roof. I have spent all morning trying to get a decent picture of it but it is so fast! Even at 1/3200 second! I really want a beautifully captured shot against today's glorious blue sky...

Nice shot of a fast acting situation! I have never been fast enough.

I will admit to not caring to see birds 'getting it' from a raptor, etc.
BUT... I do understand that nature is just doing nature. :)
I used to duck hunt, so I have changed to a softer version of myself, now, I don't know who that guy was that duck hunted, but, again, I get that too, I also try to buy duck stamps just to help in the effort and all of the good that it does.
On the flip side, on my Flickr I have a LOT of critters eating other critters, so I am not a hypocrite. heheh

Now, to my real reply.
The House Finch get that disease because of the tube feeders that allow them to inadvertently rub one, or both eyes on the seed opening.
I 'used to see' that with House Finch until I read an article about that, so I stopped using tuber feeders.
I know... Why only House Finch? I can't answer that really, but I would hazard a guess as to the shape of their beaks versus that of an English Sparrow.
Now I could sure be wrong on the tube feeders, I don't see it mentioned below in the article, but since I have stopped using tube feeders I have only seen about 1 bird per year as opposed to the 'many' that I would see annually at my feeders.
I may be getting infected birds from other feeders in the neighborhood, I don't know.

From online...
"Avian conjunctivitis is an eye infection that can inflict many species of songbird but is most often seen in house finches. The bacteria affect the conjunctiva, the membrane surrounding the eyes, causing the tissue to swell and become irritated. As the infection spreads, the bird can become completely blind."
https://feederwatch.or​g …/house-finch-eye-disease/ (external link)

I am also not trying to derail your post, I apologize for that if you felt I did. :)

Wow. Thanks for the wonderful reply and information for hopefully many!

I somewhat agree about the tube feeders. I try to keep everything clean but one bird coughing in and around the water and food, plus they seem to get into scraps with other birds because they no longer use proper protocols. Interesting that I’d never connected the dots on the eyes up against tube feeders. BIG thank you!

When I grow up....:)

Powerful and beautiful capture!

I apologize to you and all the others that post wonderful photos that I missed or didn’t take the time to comment on. I just don’t get to spend enough time in here.

A buzzard from our first morning on North Uist, Scotland, from 2018. Literally drove out of the cottage drive to see it perched on a fixer upper, before it flew off. A bit worried for the sheep if I'm honest

Buzzards Buteo Buteo dont go after anything larger than say a rabbit and mainly go for already dead road kill, when you see then dash down its most likely they have seen a hare or similar, the sheep are Way to big.
