    Nothing too exciting here. Just a cormorant, drying its feathers in the late evening sun. It didn't mind me at all - but does have a slightly surprised lok on its face, perhaps.

    A bt further down the river (Quoile, Northern Ireland) there was a family of swans. Two adults (one shown here) and three nearly full-grown cygnets.

    Against the odds

    I don't get close to birds much (the feathered variety!!) on a day to day basis -
    but we do have them visit the tree in our garden - but it isn't at allclose for photos!
    So,
    Against the odds i took a couple today - this is where the Olympus Ultra zoom
    is a bit more handy than my A-200
    Still - it wasn't likely to be much good and, as such, these are not great - but
    I was pleased to get them at all!!
    C-740UZ 380mm + 3xdigital zoom, interolated to 3200x2400. ISO200, f3.7, 320th sec, -0.7 ev. slight PP in Serif Photo Plus, (slightly brightened), plus resize

    Against the odds 2

    Another with the C-740.
    This one the same as before - except only 100th sec (that's at 1140mm equiv!!) no antishake - it hasn't got it - so I steadied the camera on the kitchen door!

    Glenn; that is quite a little bird spot you have. Enjoy all the photos!

    You seem to know your birds. This was a very hurried, off centered, and OOF shot, but I am dying to know what bird this is. I think its some kind of vulture, but it seems a little too pretty for that.

    Anyone?

    Big Black Bird

    Vich,
    I believe your bird is what we call a Turkey Buzzard, AKA Turkey Vulture. Go to www.enature.com and you can find his scientific name. Good luck. Where did you photograph this bird? We have loads of the in my neck of the Ozarks! One area here is called Buzzard Roost. Lots of businesses and streets named for this bird. They are a protected scavenger bird.

    That was a cute suzzie I saw too! I like to bird watch. Love all of the birds pics!
