Local Kingfisher. Very strong sunlight means that the iridescence of the feathers causes a troublesome metering issue...
My Favourite Bird would be the humble Chaffinch.
That said I have the greatest of respect and admiration of all our feathered friends....Even Pigeons!!....You cant blame them for being succesful!!
I'm with mohikan in that there is something special about raptors, my favourite at the moment are the kestrel chicks I've been privileged to see develop and fledge.
But I get pleasure out of being able to see and photograph any wildlife as long as I can do it without disturbing them.

I know, they scared the cr*p out of me in Jurassic Park !!!!!!!
Even seagulls can be amazing
i agree with you, a bird doesnt have to be beautiful to be great
Very true just look at a vulture! one UGLY bird but can be very intelligent and ferocious.
I was going to say that my favourite wildlife is the tasty ones! I spent many years doing the other sort of shooting, prefer the camera now. I used to wonder when I heard people say that, but now I'm older, I understand. Rather watch them fly and run free. I love the pic of a bird on a fence post, but I can't decide if it's a Snipe or a Jack Snipe, I'm more experienced in the rear view as they zigzag away. I think the Snipe has longer tail feathers than the Jack Snipe but they're not clearly visible here. I remember standing on the shore of Lough Neagh with my Labrador at heel, when a Snipe flew in and proceeded to feed not two feet away. Grouse ( my long departed, never to be forgotten companion) was quivering from nose to tail, but remained steady. When the wee bird realised we were there, I swear it did a double take of the scene before giving a squawk and clearing off!
Just by mear chance THIS is what i meant by ferocious ........I hope he is well too.
my favourite wildlife are the one's that sit still whilst I take a photo
King of the Castle
Lions, whether they are in the wild or captive. They are so majestic and offer great photo opportunities. Here a a few I've taken:
Taken in Kenya
Taken in Tanzania
I don't think I have a particular favourite species but I do like shots that show behaviour rather than more static record shots (that's not to say that I don't do a lot of the latter )
If pushed to make a choice I suppose it would have to be Baboons (but my shots are really captive animals, not "Wildlife" as we don't have many free-roaming baboons in Dorset (a few driving cars round here though! )
