Killer shots of the turbo tunnel beaks at work Chucho. I havent seen one hit pay dirt yet, that photo captures it nicely!

And that's one big azz turtle YLD! Too bad they aren't plentiful anymore.

Nice backyard PPB! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Here's a couple from yesterday. The kids were active...



















This here is one of the fledglings,



They flew for the first time yesterday. Probably won't be hanging around for too much longer. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

I'm amazed at some of the high grade shots on this thread. I've come to expect it from some of the regulars (keen, Awe, etc), but PPB surprised the hell outta me. Turning over a new leaf Robert?

Nice spinner shot.
Sometimes I wish I'd have gotten a decent camera and learned to use it back in the day.
Maybe I still can. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
Just fabulous quality from you guys though......I love the ones of the Kestrels with their prey. Too neat!

I could bombard you with Lovebird pics but will spare you my efforts and encourage yours.
Keep 'em coming.

Take care.

That's a great shot Awe! Really nice color, contrast and capture! Kinda adds new meaning to the namesake Tern! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

On the subject of Terns.. did you know that the Least Tern is the smallest of all the Terns and is considered endangered due to diminishing coastal nesting habitat.

Great shots of the least terns. You shot those at the enclosure by River Jetties, right? There are a lot of them this year.

There are only about 2000 of those birds in the world.
