    Canon S5 IS---Digital camera video. These Mallard hens were enjoying a quiet snooze in a secluded area, until I came along. The S5 autofocus held tightly on them, despite the branches and leaves in front. The mikes picked up distant sounds behind me very nicely.

          This little Black Phoebe was just sitting on a boat on the edge of a little lake in Huntington Beach, California. Black Phoebes are flycatchers and so the lake was a perfect place to look for yummy insects to eat.

              Sony TRV730 Digital8 camcorder. These amazingly long-legged shore birds have been spending their nesting seasons at Fern Ridge Wildlife area near Eugene, for the past 10 years. Prior to that, they were almost unknown in this area. They never seem to be quiet or relaxed, always fussing and moving around.

                    Sony VX2100 DV camcorder. About 12,000 of these little Cackling Geese spend their wintering season near our town. They have become accustomed to me and I've been able to slowly walk up to within 25 feet of a large flock, before they start to edge away. I always wear the same jacket and cap and talk to them, so they can recognize my voice. Many of them spend the night on a marsh half a mile from my house and I can hear them fussing around, never completely quiet. They fly over twice a day, to get water and gravel from a river. They nest up a long river estuary and valley on the west coast of Alaska. There's more than 200,000 of them wintering along the full length of our Willamette Valley.
