wedgetail eagle, Ive been trying to get a shot of one of these for three years. canon 30D 70-200 F4 L and EF 1X4 TC at 280mm, I wish i had a 100-400 for closer shots.









to give you an Idea of the size of these birds, this is a medium sized kangaroo he is feasting on



Canon EOS 30D & 70-200 F 4 L lens at 200mm This is a Baudins black cockatoo



In his natural landscape



a couple more shots taken with the 70-200 F4 L and the 1X4 TC

Silvereye

Great shots of birds I've never seen before and which look quite different. The background of the country (Cockatoo taking off) looks amazing.

BTW, I'm from the Western Canadian prairies, which run parallel with Minnesota, the Dakotas and Montana, so the landscapes, I'm used to looking at, although great, are not like that at all.

Thanks for looking. Amazing as it seems a short distance from this area is flat farming land
