Birding with Superzooms - Backyard Update

Hi all,

Our last birding post was about 10days ago, announcing the 3rd nesting of our beloved Bluebird pair, Missy & Ben:
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1010&thread=41808739

We're very pleased to report now that the 5 eggs in that 3rd nest have hatched today, and the new nestlings are all fine and active. Missy and Ben are both feeding them apace, and all is well.

We'll hope to have further updates on our Bluebird family soon, but meanwhile I thought we might share a few recent captures of some of our other yardbirds...

Ruby-throated Hummingbird (adult male) :

White-breasted Nuthatch (sunning) :

Northern Cardinal (adult male) :

American Goldfinch (adult female) :

Bluejay (fledgling) : [this is a 100% crop @20ft]

Mourning Dove:

American Robin (fledgling) :

Carolina Chickadee:

And one of the ten Bluebird fledglings from the earlier nestings of this season:

We hope you enjoy these,

Kenn
