Great series Steve! Love the Peregrine. Looks like you had our light down there. This is type of light I shoot in probably 50% of the time. Quite challenging getting the detail with all that white b'ground. Nice job!...cheers....Don

Thanks Don. The light was pretty dim. That little male Peregrine was most accommodating though. I think he had just finished a meal.

All the best,
Steve

Those are very nice shots, I need to go on vacation somewhere that there are birds to shoot like that and get out of this bitter cold weather we have been having for weeks now.

Thanks, Heck yeah, come on out. We're in the 70's this week. We don't have a budget and the State is going to issue IOU's instead of tax refunds, we are in a severe drought, home values have dropped 40%, double digit unemployment and rising but hey, the weather's fine.

Those Peregrine shots are classic - great opportunity.

The Avocets are both males (the females have more upturned bills) - the first already in Spring plumage.

That Peregrine has made a habit of roosting in that tree for long periods during the day. Very accommodating of him wouldn't you say?
Thanks for the clarification on the Avocets. I wasn't sure, so I appreciate the correction.
