    Follow-up to my previous post, here's another bird calling from a fencepost. These Icelandic Alarmists were seemingly everywhere we went.

    Very nice image. The head turn, open bill and background really helps the image.
    Moss on the perch also add to the image.

    Well done.

    Apart from the well-worn plumage, this is a very nice image of this beautiful shorebird. Good head turn, excellent green BG.

    Nice calling pose and nice background. Like the light and the lichen on the post.

    Can't say that I'm a big fan of vocalization images. Really like this type of background. Nice perch also.

    You have captured the essence of the redshank perfectly!
    Love the perch and the clean BG.

    I think it looks great Bill this is a shot I have been wanting to have in my collection (along with a snipe) for years. The plumage looks well defined and you have shown the eye very nicely too.

    She's a beauty, and what a voice. Great light and she's doing her best to stay on the post as the gusty wind picked up.
