Twojugs' recent activity

  • I just ran your 3rd photo through the new Cornell MERLIN Photo ID program trial and it suggested a female or immature  either Anna's or Black-chinned Hummingbird. My guess is Anna's but maybe ...
  • Looks like a female Anna's Hummingbird. Nice shots. Like the flowers in the frame. Tony
  • It always helps to let us know where the photo was taken. I think this is a female Palestine Sunbird. Tony
  • Nice pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers
  • Not sure where you live, but if its in the Eastern US or Canada, this looks like an Eastern Phoebe to me. It has a very distinctive cal "fee-be, fee-be". Tony
  • Examples
  • Haui: I was also able to shoot several hummers recently in Panama. In my PP process, I have tried to de-emphasis the background somewhat and also not over saturate the birds. In particular, I ...
  • Coincidentally, I have been having ID issues with two herons, both shot in the same location in Panama, which is the overlap region between the two species. The first shot I think is a Green Heron ...
  • Jim: The Cornell and Audubon maps are someone's 'best guess', while the e-Bird maps are based on peoples actual sightings, which will include birds that are well away from their normal range. Tony
  • This is indeed a great resource, particularly if you are birding away from your normal 'patch'. I have used it for Cuba, Mexico and Panama amongst others. It does, however, rely on people reporting ...
  • Nice shots, Ron The Black-necked Stilt does not occur here in Ontario. When they are out of the water, their bright pink legs are very noticeable. Did you know that the Black-crowned Night-heron is ...
  • Jim: You may be interested in this page from the Atlas of Breeding Bird of Michingan. http://www.mibirdatlas.org/Portals/12/MBA2010/BAORaccount.pdf Tony
  • Replied in Tony...
    Ron: Perhaps 'virtually identical' was a bit strong. I just got the impression that Jim might not be aware that there is a very similar bird in the Eastern US. Look forward to your CIF BIF ...
  • Jim; the virtually identical Baltimore Oriole is common over the whole Eastern US and Canada. Tony
  • Henrys in Toronto lists the K3-II as 'in stock' at at least threee of its stores for $1,249.99 CND Tony
  • Nice shot Ron. 1. The current Clements Checklist lists them as separate species, Icterus bullockii and Icterus galbula. The 'Northern' Oriole group was split into Baltimore, Bullock's and ...
  • This is indeed a female Green Kingfisher (Chloroceryl americana). Kent:  Its the Green that has the white spots, as does this photo, and also a complete dark band across the chest. The Amazon has ...

  • Created questions Exposure and pixel shifting
    I have read a number of threads both here and on other forums which suggest pixel shifting will only be useful in a studio or fixed setting, due to the exposure times being extended and subject ...
  • Ron: Lets be honest. As a test of the lens combination its OK, but as a bird image it leaves a lot to be desired. The composition is bad, over exposed and the perch is too busy. I though many of my ...
