What a great find this white-tailed kite nesting site has been for you. Your shots of these birds have been phenomenal, again and again. This one is no exception, Shalu.
It's really fantastic.

Very appealing shot, Shalu. This is the coolest grackle shot I've seen. Really nicely done. I'm assuming the corn was the trick to getting so close.

Thank you very much, Mike! It was close to a garbage dump, the corn was just there on the ground. I had nothing to do with it but benefited from it. :-P

Very dramatic shot. "Rising above the green mist." I sure like this one.
