The first couple of head shots are heavily cropped from the original, hence a bit noisy.

I like them all but especially #5 - it looks more balanced and doesn't lose the tail in the fencing pattern.

Nice captures, 5 for me as well, I like the fact that the bird is caught in a an about to fly off type of stance.

And a few seconds later, it did just that, but I did manage to get within a couple of meters of it first.

It seems these youngsters haven't learned to fear a camera wielding human yet.
