Nice shots on Whiskey Jay. Last one is my favorite

And  good job on catching them, it's not easy to shoot these small birds, they keep wiggling all the time.

All shots with A77 + Minolta 200mm/2.8, handheld and a fast PP. Still trying to learn how to get the best out of this new lens, but so far so good.

Looks like a Red-tailed Dennis.  Nice focus.

Re: Backyard Hawk

Cool. I love backyard wildlife. I just had a Cooper's Hawk swoop though my backyard yesterday pursuing an unidentified mid-sized bird.

Re: The last few days worth...

Some exceptional shot there Owen...I shot a white throat at my feeder a few days ago (handsome bird).  There are a number of sightings here is C. Oregon the last couple of years...seems this Eastern bird is expanding its territory.

Egret taken with A77 and 135 STF

Still learning to use my STF, birds can be difficult as they don't stay still long enough to focus.

That STF shot turned out pretty nice.

I really wish that they did a 200mm STF!
