Default Challenge September - Black and White

Well last months challenge http://photocamel.com/forum/birds/18...ns-egrets.html went fairly well although we never managed to get to 1000 Still, it was a good effort by everyone so thanks to all who took part, especially the members that hadn't participated before. This month I thought we would try black & white. So please post either your black and white birds. They can be either colour shots of black and white birds or actual black and white conversions.

Good Challenge, there are lots of bird species with B &W plumage, Think of all the Gulls and Terns etc. I have left that out of my collection. I enjoy these challenges, makes me search through my files and reminds me of photos that I had forgotten I had taken. I hope we see a lot more people post their photos here.
Here's my contribution to get things going. The bird names are in the file name, just hold your mouse pointer over the photo.

Thanks for your kind comments Michele, my first shots are of a Pied Avocet, a beautiful bird species, but not so colourful as their American cousins, they have red breasts and heads, all together there are five different Avocet Species
