Excellent idea, and I'll do just that. And I hope that the thing has dropped off of her wing.
Norm, this thread scrolled off of the first page since everyone has been so prolifically posting their great images! I just had to bump this thread back to the top because I was curious - did you ever get back to photograph that mama willet to see about the spot on her wing?

No problem. Happy hunting. The spot was most likely something quite benign and we probably needn't worry about it.

BTW, had you ever read the messages in Eric CAN's thread where he proposed a friendly challenge to photograph an ovenbird?

Ovenbird?

I think the closest I'll get to one of those is photographing a roast chicken. Since the leaves have come out I rarely get a glimpse of the Yellow any more. Aren't these Ovenbirds the ones that rush about in the tangled underbrush, rarely flying, while practicing their ventriloquism?

I'll keep my eyes out but I'm not anticipating too much on that one.

Ovenbirds do like the underbrush but you will most likely find them at the forest floor level, often in fairly open areas of the forest. But, at least in my experience, they won't stay put for long.

They definitely fly, away from you that is, but keeping low, perhaps 3-4 feet above the forest floor.

The best way to find them is to listen for their song which is very distinctive.

Very nice shots Norm. This is my first time seeing Willet's baby. Did you use your Bigma for these shots or the FZ10?

I can't remember, bobbyz, it could have been either since both do the job in the right environment, from what I've found. Thanks for the input.
