    We went to Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge yesterday morning for the first time and i was pretty excited about all the birds that were roaming around there.
    My wife was driving, so i just sat in the passenger seat and yelled "STOP!", "Ok, now slow!" , "Slower!!!" "@&%$ยง" (After the bird took off...) you get the idea... :1398:

    I also tried to identify all the different birds. If I made a mistake and you know which one i really shot, please let me know:

    That should be a Dickcissel

    Then we have a Red-winged Blackbird

    And finally a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

    I am not sure if the Flycather is still juvenile, but i guess so because of the length of its tail.

    Thank you! It's a Canon 100-400mm on a Canon 7D respectively Canon 5DMkIII. I switched Cameras depending on distance to bird and light situation.
