The first 3 shots were from last week. As usual, under very dull light. I think all these were with the 70-200L IS f/4. The Coopers Hawk is one I overlooked, which was shot under the same conditions as the first 3......oh for a blue sky.....cheers...Don

1.......this Sparrow, like other sparrows I often see, often like to look over their shoulder before tiring of you and moving on...

4...Coopers Hawk. This is about the best shot I've ever got of these elusive birds. They're very skittish around here, and usually you'll have many branches to shoot around to get a clear shot. This is as clear a vantage point that I had before he took off....

Great detail Don [you're welcome to some of our bue sky:G] Incidently, how do you compare the 30d to the Pentax ?

I see the one chickadee is ringed, it must be quite a job keeping track of those little fellows.





Cheers

Great job for the poor light, Don. Anytime you can get a Coopers Hawk that clear, you've done good!

Really like the hawk - looks like he is dreaming of sunnier days too!
