I see there is a plethra of wildlife to shoot up there. You have photographed these wonderfully!
The hardest part of accepting criticism is realizing I am not perfect.......

Perfect series of birds, I rather have the little birds than the herons.

As others have said, these are all great photos. I don't own the Sigma 150-500, but I have borrowed one from a close friend, and I have also found it to be a fine performer.
