This forum is for posting bird photos and for general discussions in the field of bird photography. Although the site is focused on BC Birding, topics here and photo postings can include birds from around the globe. As well, you are encouraged to include a link to your personal bird photo galleries.
Since the other challenge is slowing down as we get down to the "hard to find" birds I thought I would post a new challenge: "BC Birds with Bugs" ... This is for pictures of Birds with food ... I called it bugs, but it can be anything they've caught or are holding. Here's my first post ... Black-capped Chickadee with a Cicada. The only stipulation would be a BC bird ... doesn't matter which year. This is just for fun!

Now here's 1 that I can get into!

An American Robin with not only some bugs, but worms as well! I actually have quite a few photos of Robins with worms but I will show some restraint and post only this one :mrgreen:.

A Barred Owl with what's left of a black squirrel.

A Male Northern Flicker with a beak full of suet.

And finally a Northwestern Crow with a clam.

I have many more but I will hold off until I see other posts - I don't want to hog the topic.
This my most recent bird with a bug photo!

Finally got a few minutes to put up a few to keep this thread moving. It's an interesting one and seeing what is going into the mouths of our subjects gives us insight into their habits. Some of these are taken yesterday and some are from a while back...
