Hey Everybirdy,

Poor me! Working hard chasing and banding Scrub-jays with my D200 slung on my shoulder. Every once in a while some slacker will be driving by, see me with my binocuars and yell out his window in jealous sarcasm "Get a real job!!". To this evious barrage my only reply can be, "It's good to be the king!" :biggrin: :tongue:

Truth be told, it's not so easy trudging through the scrub when it's 92 degrees out, plucking off ticks at the end of every day, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!! :biggrin:

Neat work on the nighthawk, a bird few of us have had the opportunity to shoot.

Thanks everyone!! This was the first photo op I've had of a nighthawk with my D200. My one disappointment was that I had the ISO inadvertantly on 400, wouild have preferred at least 200, whaddya gonna do?
The scrub habitat is optimal for nighthawk nesting as well as Scrub-jays so I feel pretty good I'll get another shot!
