Jake, this is truly a wonderfulseries or maybe I should say assortment of exotic looking birds or at least exotic to us on this side. You can come up with more colorful and strange looking birds than anyone I know of and they are all first rate photos. Keep them coming, I love them. Oh and the Cape Weaver is my favorite. I am just amazed at the nest those guys make. I would just love to have them in my b.y.

Some really awesome photos - I'm amazed at how close you get to these birds - are you using a tele converter or is this just the 100 to 400.

Is there anything important is this guys techbique that I'm missing?
You gotta have webbed feet, Dave !!

Thanks for looking in and the encouraging comments, all !!

Houston, I had a look just now, there are about 100 nests in this penny gum tree overhanging into our yard, and it is quite enjoyable watching them at "work", far better than watching the gunk on the "box"

CCtrader, I'm using a Canon 100-400L lens. I do have a 1.4 converter which I haven't really used yet, but I see Houston is getting excellent results with his 100-400 /20D / 1.4TC combo

John, do you know where we could obtain a portable bird hide in SA. They sound like a good idea !!

I've been wanting to get one of those myself - maybe Cape Union Mart? It may be easier and cheaper just to make one...
