    Those are very nice. The second one is very colorful.


    I am not sure what kind of bird it is but it looks good.

    The first one looks to me like a juvenile male Vermillion Flycatcher. I may be off though. Where are the photos from JJ?


    as john said, the second one is an american kestrel.


    Great Pictures by the way, the kestrels

    I just googled "juvenile Vermillion Flaycatcher". It sure looks like it, if you have a picture of it in the front that would make it much easier to tell.

    yeah, you caught me,Nick!, it's eye was at least 1 1/3 stop under exposed[:$]. this was the result after I selectively brightened the eye . it does look strange to me too.

    well the name is just Vermillion Flycatcher, but it doesn't look like a normal one because it is still in its first year, and so it doesn't look like a normal adult male.

    That pretty much confirms it then, seeing as Vermillion Flycatchers only range in the us is the south west.

    Alright I wouldn't consider this my "best" bird shot. But I think this is a cool bird. A much more rarely seen and photographed one anyway. Took this photo yesterday morning.


    American Bittern


    50D, 100-400mm @ 400mm, f5.6, 1/1250, ISO 200
