3 weeks ago I saw the first GBH flying back to their usu rookery. And I can now around 15 of them on treetops (around 50' up) almost a mile a way. Spring is finally around.

The GBH's won't be here until there is some open water for them. Right now everything is frozen over and even the smallest ponds are solid ice.

Nice composition Tom...I can see that your 300mm is performing up to it's usual specifications in terms of sharpness and detail! The bokeh in the background really sets off the birds!

That shot is with my Sigma APO 300mm 2.8 on the K20D, along with the Robin shots. It seems to be a nice lens, but it is heavy on the K20D and really requires a tripod for reliable results.

Cool shot. That reminds me we might be seeing the herons soon. I had never seen one before moving here. My first experience of one was having the shadow of one flying over the car encompass the entire car. My son, who was 3 at that time immediately thought pterdactyl.:-) I had to do some research to figure out what they were.
