Happy New Year of 2012 my fellow bird shooters! :D
Thank you for sharing all your fantastic bird photos over the years. Keep 'em coming. Wish you have even more great success in the new year.

Here i would like to share a lifer that made my heart pound hard when seeing it in Buenos Aires. It's such an interesting bird for one to encounter. I went to Costanera Sur on November 16. It was a weekday. So, not too many people. We entered through the southern gate. Immediately at the gate, i heard a call that i hadn't heard before throughout the trip. I looked up and saw a few Narrow-billed Woodcreepers. This one in particular had a "trophy" in posession. It's proud to show off the trophy. :D

good set Fee, always adds that bit when they have an insect in their beak.
Happy new year to you as well!

Excellent shots, if they are near as fast as the type here, very fast here. Well done!

Nice shots and congrats on the "lifer" ... the little guy sure resembles his cousin of the north.

Thanks Tina. He didn't seem to be too hungry to swallow the moth. Flied from branch to branch for a good 20 minutes. :lol:

Thanks Bret. This was a bit more cooperative than the Brown Creeper i saw in my neck of the woods. Maybe because of its show-off attitude. :lol:

Those are surely prized captures Fee, and another w/a bug in it's beak.
It looks like from your data and the background that it wasn't the easiest capture either...you did very well! That's a bird I guess I won't be seeing anytime soon.
