  2. Nice series. Includes species I have not seen before (some of them don't venture this far east). Looks like the TC20 works well with that lens.
  3. Great series Landy!
  4. Thanks, Larry and Anthony.

    Wow! Some very good shots of some very cool birds! I could sit and work any bird you have here all day and be a very happy camper.
  6. VEry nice series, some wonderful shots here.
  7. Thank you Robert and Louie. The southward migration has started now and can't wait to see what shows up here in the next few weeks.

    The burrowing owl family is incredible, what a rare capture. I am partial to those Gamble chicks drinking too.
  18. Thanks....the Burrowing Owl family started off with 7 young and both parents. I visit their burrow only once a week just to monitor their progress and so as not to disturb the birds. This past Sunday evening I only saw 5 young and the adult female....no adult male. All of the young are flying now.
  19. WOW! Absolutely gorgeous! Lovely lighting on all!
  20. Thanks, Dianne. Appreciate your kind comments.
