Thanks, Yesh

It would be great and very useful for reference if everybody could identify their shots. A picture without the identification isn't worth much.
Let's add a description to each photo from now on.

Found this small bird in a marsh near my home.

After some more research, it appears that this is a female red-winged blackbird, the best studied and most abundant living bird in America. Could have fooled me.
Brown bird masquerading under a cloak of different colours? That is downright deceiving. Things, females can get away with.

Great images all round. Where did you get those? In T O?
Image 1, 4, 5 & 6 are spectacular indeed.

Earlier I was in Markham and I did not bring my long lens. And the longest one was just a 135mm (Pentax FA135mm) And I got real close. And I mean it.

The GBH just did not care as it was trying to feed itself before its long migration to the south

Thanks, glad you like the shots. Getting shots of birds in flight is quite challenging.

These shots were not in T.O. but near Tampa Florida. These birds happen to be on the resort grounds. I took my 70-200 mainly to take some action tennis shots. But found the opportunity to photograph birds that I normally don't see here in T.O.

So, I became an accidental bird photographer.
