A couple from this afternoon. These guys are pretty noisy. They were in my next door neighbour's pine tree - taken using the Coolpix 4500 + TC (no lenses yet for the D2H) :( . Focus point a little off on the 1st one I think.

Thanks, Gale. I find the hardest part with these guys is to get the highlight in their eyes. I have the same problem with crows. They are nice birds to look at and they stay around all year - but they are noisy - especially when the neighbour's cat wanders the yard at 5:00 in the morning! :)

So sorry for you

We have two adults and three babies in my backyard. I'm sorry for you if you have to put up with all the noise like we are doing. We tried to break down their nest when they first appeared, but they went next door and built one. They spend most of their day hanging out in our trees and squawking at our two cats and dog. The pictures are nice, though. I haven't been able to get any good ones yet.

Thanks everyone. Soon I'll be able to practice flight shots with my new 70-200VR + 1.7 TC as they start to fly around more. :) :)
