I guess I'll work this thread in reverse - starting with the most recent bird of prey shots from this past Saturday, then digging through the past shots in later posts. Here's Saturday's stuff with my new A580 camera:

Erm... can I have some light please? Check out the exif... Camera jpeg resized in photoshop, nothing more. I'll have to ID this one later. Image processing using a netbook isn't fun while I'm on travels (yes, assignment possibility there!)

Philippine Monkey-Eating Eagle

Quote:
The Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), also known as the Monkey-eating Eagle, is an eagle of the family Accipitridae that is endemic to forests in the Philippines. It has brown and white-coloured plumage, and a shaggy crest, and generally measures 86–102 centimetres (2.82–3.35 ft) in length and weighs 4.7 to 8 kilograms (10 to 18 lb). Among the rarest, largest, and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippines national bird. It is critically endangered, mainly due to massive loss of habitat due to deforestation in most of its range.

below is a couple from a brown falcon, the light was horrible. I played around with pp, notice the bit of feather missing from the wing tip. Its in other shots, never quite seen that before.

These are amazing! Fish eagles might just be my favourite animals (beside elephants!). I hope to find an affordable trip so I can explore more areas. I've heard Africa has great places to view fish eagles.

Just got a 1.4 TC from the guys in the brown outfits yesterday afternoon, so I took the day off and took a little drive to try it out with my 300mm f2.8.

This is one of the better photos from the day at about 50% crop. I think I will keep the 1.4 TC.

Also got this picture of a young Bald Eagle I believe.

Thanks Wolfsong. Had 5 hours of total driving time to get them. It was 60+ degrees out there yesterday so the walleye fishermen came out full force. By 9:00 am there had to be at least 60 boats out already which stopped the eagles from doing their normal routine. 5 hours driving for 1 hour of taking pictures...oh ya it was worth it just to enjoy the beautiful weather.
