    That is just wrong... I mean what in the name of God is wrong with those birds?

    You guys down in Alabama must be doing something to the food supply for them not to be flying away!!

    Come on tell us yankees the secrets!!!!

    I enjoyed our session yesterday. I don't think that I've ever seen the birds that bunched up on our side of the river.

    Nice shots, especially the YBHS. :rolleyes: 
  5. I just hope i can get that close to those birds, I have not had any chance yet.

    Good shots.... The GBH is an amazing bird. Can be quite friendly as well.

    Not sure about the YBHS hahahahahahaha

    Dave, these rocks are usually lined with fishermen, so the birds have become pretty used to having people around. I've heard that they have even stolen fish from the fishermen.
    But yesterday there were almost no fishermen for some reason. Which was fine by us. :cool: 

    Thanks for the comments.

    Great capture, I like the bird that look straight at the camera :smile:
  9. I'va said that before.... YOU are VERY LUCKY !!!! :confused: 
    The only time I can get so close to so many birds, is when I'm reading my coffee table books about birds... :mad:

    Excellent work Chris. I think you've done well capturing the YBHS in its natural environment.

    Frank, what's the going rate for hiring that many GBHs to stand around and pose for photogs? I would also point out that it's meant to be WILDlife photography. At this rate you'll have 'em following you home and will be setting up a garage studio where you can pose them in a more "natural" environment. :smile:

  12. Flying or not they are great detailed shots. You should be rightfully proud of them.

    Wonderful series, Chris! I can't believe you had so many GBH's in one place! And capturing that YBHS in a natural pose is amazing!
  14. This is crazy. I went to local park and was following 1 bird for couple hours. Here you have ~15 without even moving an inch.

    Jealousy !
