  • Epxerts - What bird is this?

    Hi all,

    I see this bird every now and then out in the back of the house.

    It's raining this morning, and it probably didn't feel like flying around, so I took a quick shot of it:


    Shot details:
    Nikon D300
    ISO 1600, RAW
    Nikkor 70-300mm VR @ 1/500s f/6.3, 300.0mm
    Postprocessed in Nikon Capture NX to taste, cropped, resized

    Thanks in advance!

          Thanks KKK - any suggestions for a better crop?

          Perhaps something like this?

            Corp to Landscape will look better for me.

            Your image noise look very high.

                      Careful when shots in the rain....mush keep you lens in good condition....

                      70-300mm is a good start for bird too....if 400mm start will be better...

                        Hey Nelson - I was shooting from a room in my house, but will definitely remember your advice.

                        For birds, I've decided to stay out of this game for now, else I might find myself robbing banks to buy 500mm+ lenses

                        P.S. Your PBase gallery has to be one of the best bird galleries out there! I'll visit often for inspiration.
