Great entries so far by everyone!
This contest has collected some fantastic bird photos all in one thread. Wow!

Tineckbone-
Your bird take off photo should be called, "ready, set, go!"

And your Eagle photo...what a great capture with your camera. It feels so inspirational!

Thanks BooBooBearBecky!
The "Ready, Set, Go" picture was a surprise to me when I saw the image after the shot. I was taking several shots of them as they were all taking off, thought it was pretty cool the way I captured tres cormorants.

The Eagle photo was taken during a cruise to watch the mass migration of the Purple Martins. While everyone was watching them, I was watching the Bald Eagle!

Alright, a few more, even though Dave's pics are giving me a massive photographic inferiority complex!

Havalotta,
Nice series of Trumpeter Swan (Cygnus buccinator) photos.

Trumpeter Swan Photo #2 in your series could have been posted in the "Guess Which Bird Butt This Is thread.

The Swans all lined up with their rumps on the surface of the water look as though they are mooning us!
