  6. Great shots! I'm not a birder but I love birds. Just recently I came back from Panama and snapped lots of pics of birds on that Pipeline Road and it was incredible. But I'm not a birder. I can see why these guys are fascinating....and thrill of finding one after patiently waiting...well it's awesome. But I'm not a birder:) I'll have my bird shots up in August. You've always have amazing pics. Thanks for sharing:)

    Thanks Roy. I hid behind some geese to get that one lol

    Those Coots are quite noisy this time of year Adrian. Noisy most of the year, come to think of it lol

    Thanks Pete. I was pleased with the few shots I got of it.

    Thanks Andrew. I got lucky with this one. It was too busy feeding to notice me.

  12. Excellent photos Keith. Like Andrew I can never seem to get close enough to Sandpipers for photography. There were plenty on Mull but I didn't get anything satisfactory.
