Bob,
How close are you getting to that Kingfisher?
They're so tough to approach!

Thanks timid, Scuffy...pretty close. I shot him looking down at him at 800mm.

Here is a (edit) Downy Woodpecker from up in the mountains today.

Bob, I'd say it is a Downy, but it is still a nice shot.

Well, it's a little intimidating posting bird photos when you look at the images in this thread. But South America has to represent.

I took a walk to the river this afternoon.

Nice photos everyone!


Bob, I like those Pine Siskins (I hope I'm right, it's 3:45 am, can't sleep and don't have a book handy).
I've been trying for them in OC for 2 yrs. We did see them in the San Bernardino Mtns. last year.

It was all I could do to catch this mock bird at the pub this weekend.

Gorgeous all! As is usually the case! Our Pine Siskin count was waaaay down this year. Not sure why. Hope they come back as they are regulars at our feeders (and partly responsible for our having four nyger feeders in a tiny area!).

LOVE seeing the South American birds CClarke! Keep 'em coming!!

Those Sparkling Violeteers are awesome. That's a big ass hummer.
Post anything from So. Am., we love 'em.

Today I had a bird I'd never heard of before. The Swan Goose. There were 3 at Carr Park in HB.

Took me longer to get a 2014 house sparrow than my rough legged, golden eagle, ferugy, peregrine, etc.

Like others have requested: more SA bird pics.

Dee ee - there are many of those on my parents' property. They are adorable. One, I named Stalker, was very attached to me (and vice versa). I have many photos of him with me, in my lap, in my bed, everywhere. Sad day when Stalker died. :( I really loved that silly goose.
