I believe that's the first time I've seen a bird practicing Tai Chi

Nice pose but I can't tell if he's applauding or conducting!

Nice series.. That goldfinch is very interesting as our American Goldfinch doesn't have that red face, at least none I've ever seen,  and his bill seems to be a bit larger....

Nice shots and interesting pictures..... but aren't you shooting a bit slow for that focal length, they don't seem to be shot from a tripod... I'm probably wrong..

Nice,  some very colorful birds..  I assume that the first was uploaded in a different manner from the other five as it can't use the full view (or whatever that DPR widgit is called.)

In reply to WhyNot, Apr 15, 2013

I got so involved in looking at all the great posts this week that I almost forgot to thank Brad, Richard and carizi for your kind comments...  And thanks to everyone else who stopped by to look...... also I apologize to anyone whose entry I didn't comment on,  they were all great,  I just ran out of time. ... and words ...
