Just wanted to share a few shots from the past few weeks.

I'm brand new to Canon and was fortunate enough to find a great deal on a Canon 100-400, which has me looking 'up' much more than ever. Never realized how much excitement and fun was going on up there!

These were all taken locally on the west coast of central Florida.

One of two Pileated Woodpeckers who were thudding around.

And was lucky enough to be at a park where a Great Horned Owl took over an old Osprey nest and had two little ones in it.

Nice series from W. Fla Mike, and welcome to birding.
There is indeed a great deal of activity "above us" and you did a good job of capturing some of it.
The legs on that Little Blue are amazing, but the owl chicks are the show stealer.
Keep after `em and keep `em coming......we like crazy folks like ourselves - :)
