OK, I believe it's an Egret but I can't find what type. It looksvery muchlike a Reddish Egret.

Not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but that's a Great Blue Heron.

Great close-up, squirl. I'm starting to think that filters are not that good when used with long zoom. I had the Hoya Moosewarm polarizer on and it seems like a lost a lot of detail.

i've used a regular polarizer on my FZ20 with good enough results, but i think the FZ series have slightly sharper glass than the Sonys. as a rule, though, you're probably right... the less in front of the lens, the better, especially at long distance with max zoom...
