Nothing wrong with the quality of these latest additions. Keep them coming.

Sadly some bad news. For some reason my link took me back a few pages and whilst dwelling there I noticed #140 Booted Eagle.  I am afraid that it is a juv. Martial Eagle.:(

Always open to suggestions @Galana, but I don’t think it looks like any juvenile martial that I have ever seen....yellow and black bill, rufous/brown feathers, not speckled, white leading edge to wings, tail not barred, feet yellow. Also it was quite small, but this is impossible to tell from a photo.

Great stuff, especially like the Red-breasted Swallow and the Saddle-billed - stork! Didn't know our Hobby migrates that far South.

I am more than happy to leave it to you, its your post but I don't see any 'boots' and I do see a barred under tail.

Sorry to inform you, @Tdgraves, but the true art of the EBC is still something you will have to post! Above photos, they are all good enough to be easily recognisable !

Continue to scrap the barrel, #200 is just around the corner!!

So post them soon, @Tdgraves :).

 

On a side note, I wanted to ask before: how much of cropping do you apply on your photos? For example, how much did you crop #191 ??

@xelas the answer is, it depends. #191 was quite far away, so about 1/3 has been taken out of the edges (and that was our best photo op for that bird :angry:). For close subjects, less and usually only to get rid of branches, bits of other critters etc.

 

EBCs to follow....
