Tough lighting. A little sun, but more cloudy than I like.

I see what you mean, perhaps you could have cranked up the ISO a bit. It's amazzing howyou manage to get into position for those shots without flaring the birds are the birds in a city swamp. We have a lot of parks but the birds never pose like that for me.

Actually REM the shutter speed was up to 1000 to 1200. I like the sun to make the color pop in them. Just don't get the full color out of the birds when the skies are gray. This paticular place I take these pics at is a waterfowl meca! A privately owned marsh that the guy does not allow hunting on (THANK God!) but lets me go in to shoot the camera. Lots of natural cover. I take my camera gear and a chair in their and click away to my hearts content.

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

That is a good combo, I have a Sony A550 with a Sigma 400mm f5.6 APO lens which will get the job done if there are subjects around.
