The only critic is that the first one is soft in focus and that they are noy in the wild :-)

Impossible to get as close when they are free in their environs.

The 3rd one I definitively hate it...
...until I won't be able to take a similar one

Whats cool about these birds is that they are free flying. Meaning that they are let out every day to fly free, and at the end of the day they all ways return.

Good shots. !!!
power zoom is sure effective, heck #3 shot jumped out of the screen nearly pecked me. lol

#1 shot the bird just a teeny bit dark on my monitor.
