Default Birds

Well the first is a California Condor shot in the Grand Canyon. There are less than 200 of these in the wild. This one, as most, is tagged for research.

The second is a Pelican shot on the San Francisco Bay.

Both are excellent shots! It's always exciting to capture a picture of a rare bird like the condor.

That's great to have a photo of such a rare bird as the condor. It certainly looks like it has big feet.

The colour, exposure and composition of the flying pelican is sweet. I've just posted some pelicans on this forum. The lighting was really against me - but the formation of them in a V was stunning.

Thanks for sharing your birds!
