Having kicked off with a Bird Photography Resources thread, it seems like a good idea to add a further linked thread or two. This one invites you to share your bird shots and if it pleases you, we would love to know some background and details of the shots.
Come on guys, let's see your best birding shots ...and the rest - they don't have to be perfect or even close! Mine aren't for sure, but let me start you off with a common or garden English bird.....
Regards all and very much looking forward to seeing your bird photos....Jeff
Jeff, very nice shot. I will have to find some of mine to post for comments.
Jeff, where do I find instructions on uploading to the forum and limits on sizes? Thanks.
Taken about 2 years ago, about 50 yards from where I live, in a yard, now sold on. no longer available.They are raised in captivity, and were there 3/4 times. I had 2 visits. The background is a disaster, so Photoshop helped out. I have an invitation, to visit their "home" and get some more pics, not got around to it yet! Ed.
Almost as taken. This one was 200mm, and cropped. 1/250th @f8 400 ISO

Not really, this is the closest I have. Cheers. Ed.
I have a whole set of these two Great Cresed Grebes but I shan't bore you with them all. Taken last June with a Canon EOS 650D
Lens 100-400 at 400.0mm
1/500 sec f/6.3 ISO 640
This was on a fishing lake at Burnham-on-Sea UK
I don't usually photograph birds, but sometimes I manage to capture images of ducks and other water fowl, only because they often move slowly or, like this one near the River Colne in Hertfordshire, not at all!

I have to confess that I'm not a great 'Birder' either, but now and then I get the urge. Hence this one.
Nikon D300, ISO800, F/9, 320sec, 300mm, M/mode-pattern, White Balance Auto. Post in PhotPlus X5.
I still find black (like white) is hard to get right but you have produced a smashing shot, Philip - and very English with the lawn in the background. Cheers!
Phil, that's a nicely composed shot.
Johny, I like the shot of the bird on the nest.
