    Stunning photos, avionic! I especially like the one that looks like a raven with added colours and the fluffy footed owl. Couldn't see the last one though.

    My first baby blackbird was waiting on her mum coming back to feed her. I spotted her with her beak opened with mum feeding her and by the time I went to get my camera, baby was on her own. I waited like a cop on stake-out for the next feeding but the angle was different plus I think I missed the opened beak. I should have just kept my finger on the shutter button.

    I took this photo of a blue heron years ago with a Nikon Coolpix 5700 from my kayak. This was before I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D200. Both cameras are gone. I now use a Nikon D300 and a recently purchased D500.

    Here are a couple of other images of eagles I shot with my D200 back in 2007 using a 70-200mm f/2.8 and a 1.7x teleconverter on a tripod. The nest was at least a half mile away.

    A couple more from the archives shot from my kayak. This is a green heron.

    A few shots of one of the Kestrels who lived in our back garden a few years ago. The male brought home lots of dead snakes and rodents.

    IMG_3893.JPG I was out in my backyard when this little guy decided to land on my fence and pose for me, didn't have my long lens on so lost some resolution by cropping in.

    The baby robins are in a nest on the wreath next to the door to the pro shop where I work. The nest is about 3 feet from the door and about 6 feet high. We usually see wild turkeys, deer, and red-tailed hawks on the course.

    Cormorants aren't waterproof so they can dive better, so they have to air dry their wings.
