"The Past Week"


Rocky Hill, US
          

Several images taken 3 different days over the course of a week. The Osprey are very few in number now . The Great and Snowy Egrets seem to be massing for a run south as well as the Little Blues with their offspring and the Yellow-crowned Night Herons. Several of the small migrants showed up recently on there way south(all I have seen so far has been females and 1st year birds) and some Northern Harriers, American Kestrels and Merlins have made their way into the area, hopefully for an overwinter stay.

D7100,300mmF4,1.4tc,hand held

Osprey


Common Yellowthroat Warbler


Great Egret


Little Blue Heron


Yellow-crowned Night Heron


Black and White Warbler


Northern Waterthrush


American Redstart


Another Common Yellowthroat Warbler(not positive on this or the other yellowthroat ID)

Wow!!

All beautiful images and so good its difficult to choose a favourite.

I am really impressed by the quality of images (yours and others) that I am seeing with the 300 f4, both with and without tc. In spite of rumors that it may soon be updated I am tempted to pick one of the existing versions up. Now that I have the 500 VR I am looking for a sharper alternative to my old 80-400 AF-D VR so that I will have something light and portable for handheld shots.

Thanks, James. I also had the old 80-400mm and the 300F4 is way better than that lens even with a tc. Have no knowledge on the newer version of the 80-400, but hear it is very good. I had thought that the updated 300F4 would come out right after I purchased one but it still isn't out there. VR is only missed when I'm shooting in where the warblers and other small birds like to hang out.

Outstanding series Rick!! It looks like the osprey caught a flounder; a great feast for a raptor or a person. The osprey is my favorite, but your warbler shots, along with the others are superb.

Good shootin'

Thanks Egbert. It's the only lens I use for wildlife,including bugs. I do switch out to my 105mmMacro for some of the real small critters.

Thanks, Tom. I do try to provide an ID of my bird postings(not always right) but with warblers and sparrows I often get them wrong. And yes, there are many beautiful colorful warblers.

Excellent series of images Rick, the 300 f/4 is certainly a very capable lens and a real bargain considering the IQ it produces. Congrats on the waterthrush, a bird I've looked for but still eludes me.

Rick nice series. I especially like the Waterthrush and its reflection. Nice capture.

I just picked up a refurbished D7000 from Adorama this week. Can't wait to try it with the 300/TC 14 combo this weekend ..

Thanks Richard.I really like the 300F4 for the type of bird shooting that I do as I'm always on the move. The waterthrush is another of those birds that I have to catch during migration.First one that I've seen in a while.
