    Some great pictures here...and the rockhoppers have me firing up iTunes now.

    This is the first tufted titmouse I've ever been lucky enough to photograph before.

    I think this is a Turkey Vulcher. It's feeding on some carcase in the middle of the road.

    There are not a lot of birds that I see here in the city, but maybe I don't have my eyes open. I did come across some of these Seagulls near Lake Mead, so here is my humble contribution!

    This thread just gets better & better well done guys these are brilliant & if that last one Sod1 is not a made up shot I'm speachless. Even if it was a PS bit of magic it was worth it.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    I like the eagle shot, but the Bokeh seems a bit awkward - was this a mirror lens or a TC attached?

    If you are referring to the last photo, I had to shoot through a wire fence. Basically, the "blur" marks are the mesh-type fence. I used the Sigma 70-300mm lens for all three photos. I did take a couple of other photos of the same bird with different settings and the fence was crystal clear while the bird was blurred. Other than that I really can't provide any other settings since I am still learning how to use the camera and since I just purchased it last Friday night or more about photography in general for that matter. I guess I am still basically pointing and shooting.

    No, not the parrot - the second shot was the one to which I was referring. Sorry, didn't know you were new - and your shots are great for someone who is unfamiliar with the equipment. I was more referring to the quality of the out of focus areas in the background of the 2nd image, the highlights don't seem very smooth and I have seen similar characteristics from mirror (catadioptic) lenses and some teleconverters.

    The other two look great, but I find the second one has some distracting elements to the background (which is not a criticism of you, just the equipment) - but is otherwise a good shot too.
