Little Bird
1

Here's a couple of pictures of a little bird that I took with my Canon T2i (550D) camera and 55-250mm IS lens a few days ago.  These birds are found near some feeders at a local wetlands preserve in Oregon.  I'm able to get close to these birds if I keep very still.  Both of these photos were taken under cloudy conditions and are cropped a little too.

If someone does know the name of this bird, could you let me know?  Thanks.

Re: Little Bird

Black Capped Chickadee would be my guess. Nice capture of it!

Re: Little Bird

if you are interested in bird photog, i'd strongly recommend investing in a canon 400mm f5.6 prime. while  you bird shots are very nice, you can see the poor contrast, washed up colors, and poor detail! the canon 400mm f5.6 is exceptionally sharp and over all IQ would rival the canon big primes. it doesn't have the IS but you won't miss it after short while. keep up the good work. happy zooming.

cheerz.

Re: Central Florida Roseate Spoonbills

Nice pics Larry, the first is definitely my favorite. You guys that live in the warmer climates are so lucky to have all of the colorful bird species that you do. I never see these guys up here in Canada.

Cheers,

Tom

Re: Little Bird

Good shots Digirame, You got to love all of the Chickadee birds. They are so trusting and allow us to get close for photographs. Some of the Black Cap Chickadees in my area will even eat seed out of your hand.
