Really wish I was up at the Pacific NW - your living in an amazingly wonderful part of the world. I'm suprised you haven't splashed out on the 50-200 to get that wee xtra reach or the teleconvertor esp if you;ve got such wonderful birds so close at hand. Thats a nice capture and I'm suprised he or she didnt shoot off. I would likw to see more wild bird shots - but I know thats a seriously hard kind of tog to do.
You know what its like in the UK - have to just make do with the pigeons ...
