Like everyone else Wayne, I too am drawn to the images of the Snowy. The last is indeed quite a nice capture.
Not to take anything away from your others though. The 3rd and 4th are both excellent captures of a female Wigeon (I believe?). The 3rd especially shows exquisite detail in the fine feathers. Very well done.

Those are really nice shots, I too especially like the snowy! What set-up/lens did you use, and how did you get the IF shots of it coming towards you? I've been trying to be patient and setting up along roads where they are out in fields, including walking a good distance away from my car - but they always seem to know where I am if/when they decide to move, they head in the opposite direction. Any tips?

On a related note, some people down London/Strathroy area where at least 4 owls are hanging out this winter, and are consistently seen year to year, have expressed conerns regarding proposed wind farms in the area. This owl doesn't seem too perturbed.

A lot to cover here so I'll do my best, Canon 50D with 100-400 at F/5.6, 1/2000 sec on the snowy's , I had watched him from the road through the lens and had all ready set my EC to +2/3, I was very surprised when he got up and came towards me. The saving grace may have been a row of bushes that I was actually looking through at him, then I just fired 3 shots and they all came out nice. As far as the wind turbines go I have heard that they have found a lot of dead raptors beneath them but have read nothing concrete on it so it may be just here say, I would like to hope that the enormity of these turbines would keep them away.
