Super set. I am sure the #1 shot must be very rare. Awesome IQ in all of these. My pick is #8.

Thank you, Jude. Yeah, I believe a white Mockingbird is kind of rare. This is the first time I saw one in so many years

great stuff socrate! man that indigo bunting is pretty. your staring shots are really nice too, i was shooting them yesterday (with crappy results!) since i think that although very common, they are quite attractive and are often ignored as junk birds. really nice

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful. You've really captured the beauty of all these birds especially the starling. The bird is more correctly called leucistic as the eyes are still dark and there some colour showing in the plumage.






Glad you liked these, Roy Thanks for the comments and for the info

These are terrific, Socrate; the natural beauty of a diverse set, some unusual findings, (the white-colored mockingbird), and, of course, that incredibly cute baby bluebird (captured, no doubt, with the benefit of the new firmware)!

My favorites among these are the starlings (the combination of light and iridescence is wonderful), and the bluebirds (for the interaction), but the technical quality and impact of all of them are superb.

I know a little bit about color variation in animals, and I do not believe the mockingbird variant has been described or characterized nearly as well as color variants in some other birds, e.g.

Hi Greg. Thank you for your comments. Glad you liked the set
Yes, I had just loaded the new FW and got a new 2xTC. The Baby Blue is one of the first shot I took. I haven't MA the TC yet, however, I was very much well impressed by the quality of the images I was getting with the 2xTC. Now if I could just get a faster focus.... I use the 500mm MkI, though. I've always refused to use a 2xTC, but having seen some results, especially from your last post, I decided to give it a try. I did some test shots with the 70-200/2.8 and the 300/2.8, still w/o MA, and I was very pleased with the results.
Thanks for the great info on the albinism. I'm pretty sure neither parent had pale coloration. I have another shot together with its brother/sister, but I'm currently out of town and I cannot show to you, The other baby was "normal"

I was showing my wife this thread last night - seems I then forgot to comment on the post that got my vote for Thread of the Week !

My wife thought the Baby Mockingbird ugly .. until I pointed out it is a chick, then it turned to aaaahs

Personally I absolutely love the 4 Baby Bluebird, 8 Blue Birds, 9 Indigo Bunting & 7 European Starling (people dismiss these birds as plain and boring until seen up close with the shining iridescence transforming them). A superb set and amazing shots Socrate !
