    Good shots Mac. You sure got some funny lookin' birds there.
    The secreatary looks like it can't make up its mind if its a hawk or heron.
    The last one looks like something out of Looney Tunes.
  3. Nice shots Mike, the Crowned Crane is my favorite. Love the pose he did for you. Colors are great.
