1) Forster's Tern


2) Another one from a different angle.


3) The wing position reminds me of sissors.


4) White faced ibis in sunset lighting.


5) Sometimes if you catch the wing feathers at the right angle, they have a very beautiful shimmery green radiance. I didn't quite get it with this shot.


6) Cormorant flying over. Is it me or does it have a rubbery look to it.


7) A couple of Black Skimmers making their way up the San Diego Creek.


8) Cliff Swallow zipping low over the water looking for bugs to eat.


Thanks for looking.

- Hung

Great shots, as usual, Hung. Ibis BIFs are particularly hard to get. I like your Rough-winged Swallow, too (I would guess there were a lot of Cliff Swallow around, and you didn't notice this one was different - they go by so fast when they are close, you can barely get your eyes focused on them).

Ah I didn't know about that particular species. I was watching these swallows zip up and down the creek. They didn't look like tree swallows, barn swallows, or violet green swallows. So by default I labeled them cliff swallows. Yes they are quite fast and a challenging to photograph.
