That's a nice shot of the cormorant.

What kind of settings were you using?

I always like to ask because I have a hard time with birds in flight.

The faster the exposure the better. 1000 of a second is good but you have to have the light..

Some of the shot's of Hummers here must have been at 4000 and above.

Great thread.

EDIT

Slater , you are ripping it up.

Wow, beautiful shots above you guys!

I had a good find today at Tucker, not a lifer or county year bird though. I found a rare "Taiga" (red) subspecies of Fox Sparrow. Not a great photo, a motorcyclist scared it away. I think Doug Willick said we get maybe 2 a year in Orange County.

I spotted this screech owl driving out of my pal's farm yesterday after a Thanksgiving feast. I apologize for the quality of the shot. The old truck rattles and shakes a bit, almost as much as me.
