It was sort of a gray day when I took these first two shots. And the subjects are not overly colorful anyway. These show a small portion of one of three flocks of American
White Pelicans at Crab Orchard Wildlife Refuge in Southern Illinois. These birds are listed as rare in the refuge bird guide but I guess they did not read the guide this year.




Throwing this one in just to add some color to the post. At a Chicago Nature Center.
Full zoom and tele converter. Monopod used. 1/30 second. I was so lucky.

No thanks Steve, I'll just count the woodpecker and that's a super shot of the woodpecker BTW.

Thanks Gene and Ted for looking and commenting. I probably should go back and try that woodpecker again. Haven't paid attention to him since posting and I must say he is a bright guy. And it is getting gloomy here so brightness is good.
