These following are the synonyms for mislead, would you use any of those to describe DP's Bald Eagle post?: deceive, delude, take in, lie to, fool, hoodwink, lead astray, throw off the scent, send on a wild goose chase, put on the wrong track, pull the wool over someone's eyes, pull someone's leg, misguide, misdirect, misinform, give wrong information to;

These are the synonyms for misleading: synonyms: deceptive, confusing, deceiving, equivocal, ambiguous, fallacious, specious, spurious, false, mock, pseudo, illusory, delusive, evasive;

If DP had posted his Bald Eagle in a Thread titled Wild and Free Bird Portraits or had an attached statement saying "yesterday I was on a wild wilderness hike" that would be misleading. His post was in no way shape or form misleading.

Great Spotted Woodpecker

On my off the track forest walks I came across the sound of young birds chirping waiting to be fed. It was easy to locate where the sound was coming from a, "hole in a tree". I waited 10 minutes and sure enough the parent came in with food. Having found 3 Woodpecker nests in the past 3 days this one is perfect for light and has no obstructions. I reckon the young are less than a week old as they do not show their faces and the food coming in is small. It takes 3 weeks for the young to fledge. I shall be back in 10 days hoping to see their faces and with some luck a few days latter I may see them fledge.

I didn't have to get out the car for this photo. Buzzards are so alert, as soon as you open the door they are off.

What an awesome opportunity you have found! . To have a nest that is low enough to the ground to be photographed effectively, and to be positioned for favorable light in either the morning or the evening, is really quite a rare and special opportunity.

I have spent a great deal of time in the forests and scablands these past few weeks searching for cavity nests, and only come up with one that is favorable for photography. . But it is of a very common species which I have already photographed quite a bit - the Northern Flicker.

What you found is a treasure, and it seems that you realize fully how good of an opportunity it is, because of what you said about coming back in the near future to photograph the young when they are developed enough to stick their heads out of the nest hole in their eagerness for food.

I wish you the best with this project - please keep us posted.

"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Sedge Warblers have an amazing song. This one was going to 3 different plants continuously. I had the sun directly behind and I was ready, focused and waiting. I was surrounded by mosquito's and did not want to move. I had my camouflage gear on and after 15 minutes there he appeared in front of me. It was worth the bites to my hands to get this shot.

Thank you Tom. I only hope I can find the tree again. I love these opportunities, like your Northern Flicker this too is a common species but I enjoy the challenge of getting the right shots without disturbing them. The nest is about 25ft above the ground and I'm about 50-60ft away so the angle is not too bad. I hope to post some images for you all to see nearer the time.

I actually bought a 12 foot tall orchard ladder for such situations. . Then I mounted an Enduro ball head on the top step, so the whole ladder kind of functions as a 12 foot tall tripod that I can stand on. . It comes in really handy, but it is a real pain to carry it out into the bush. . I painted it camo so that once I find a high nest, I can leave it tucked away under some foliage and be confident that it won't be seen and stolen. .Beats having to carry it to and from the care on every outing. . Somewhere I must have some photos of the ladder in action ...... I'll see if I can dig 'em up.

Finally got a bit further afield (all of about 10 k's) and stumbled across a mob of Yellow Tails demolishing a couple of Pine trees as they are want to do. I managed a few reasonable portraits, some in flight and a couple of are you looking at me's but the weather was changeable to say the least from bright sun to heavy cloud.
