Gross, perhaps, if one is thinking only of the act itself, but more amazing than anything I've ever seen from a bird. I thought it was fantastic. What a magnificent, strange, prehistoric bird this is.
Yes, it is not your everyday observation of birds, for sure. Everything excretes in one way or another so we shouldn't be too surprised by this. Nevertheless, still kind of gross (in my book)... :crazy:

great shots Norm!! i really like #3, #4, & #5!! the last shot is quite interesting!!! did he fly away right after?? I think Eric told me that they do this to "lighten the load" before take off.

Thanks all, I sincerely appreciate the nice compliments and it reassures me that grey day shooting can sometimes be okay.

Cannon, they were shot in Central Alberta, near Camrose.

Dennis, eric has alot of very relevant information and he's probably right one this one. Put it this way, with the amount that that bird got rid of I'd say he losta pintin one sitting, which would go a long way to lightening the load.:-)

Normcar, hope your camera/lens is OK.

#3 is the best IMHO.

Norm, have you thought of cloning out the small vertical branch on pics 1, 2, & 3?? to me, they are a bit distracting. just a thought.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, dennis, I didn't really notice it until you brought it to my attention. However, it is definitely not contributing to the photo in any way and would be better off gone, thanks.

The last one is what our cars see while we're inside.

No 4 is a definate winner. Seriously great shot, totally awesome. I'm so used to seeing these guys in water or on rocks that the in tree shots are amazing.
