Some people can't stand pigeons. Here's a few reasons why I love to photograph them - plus the fact that they are just about the only birds I see in my city garden. :-)

Little duckie got caught in the hook of an abandoned fish line. I guess it must have gone for the bait. Luckily the awesome rangers at the Shadow Cliffs Regional Park were fast to act! After a quick check, the little one was off! A bit later it seemed to be all better.

Canon R7, Canon RF600 f/11
1/1600 f/11 ISO 1000

Getting used to my new R7 and my new RF600 f/11 by shooting any birds I see. I actually have never gotten a good shot of a mourning dove on the wing, This guy suddenly flew past and I snapped the R7 up. The full zone AF on my shutter button nailed him even though he was in the top right quadrant of the frame. I am more and more impressed with the R7 and its AF!!
I am getting better at getting birds in the frame with the RF600, the RF600 can give very good results!

Glad they were able to catch her and help!

These are all beautifully composed images, Rob. For me, it's tough to pick a favorite.

all Peacocks are male though. the bird is actually a Peafowl, an Indian Peafowl.

I did not realize that. Definitely good to know. Thanks.

Thanks LD, good story, I have a shooting buddy who like you carries a 3 legged partner.

Good shooting folks !!

He sounds like a very intelligent shooting buddy.;-)a :p I carry one because I simply can't stand up for any length of time. Age caught up with me.

Very nice series, PinholeR5 I like happy endings when it comes to wildlife stories.

Wow, quite a magnificent creature.
Fantastic capture Mike. Happy trails.

Many thanks, Paul...much appreciated! I always have to stop and watch them, when the males display. Even though I see it fairly often, it amazes me every time.

Mike, congrats on your close encounter of the bird kind! A fantastic opportunity, and you made the most of it, beautifully capturing the full display and the closeup.

Your kind and thoughtful compliment is truly appreciated, Paul. I see peacocks fairly often, but they almost never display right in front of me (at least not when I have a camera). It's always a pleasure to see a peacock display, no matter how many times one has seen it before.

The Warbler Guide refers to this as a "stained" Prothonotary Warbler. The reddish color on the face and head of this bird results from its feeding on hibiscus.

What a killer shot, Steve! It's truly amazing. I realize the second shot was to show us the red stain on the warbler's head. It too is a very nice shot!
