Re: My Bird Week !!!

A great set Lee. I love your little robin. I still have not been able to get a shot of our robins yet. They look quite different here.

More from the feeder. I can recognize the bluebird and the cowbird, but I am not sure of the other two. They have very vivid red eyes. If anybody has an ID, thanks...

Very nice shots!

Thank you for starting the thread Vickie!  Few more from the coastal Southern California.

You are welcome, Yuki. These are superb. I love them all but particularly the Sandpipers, such a beautiful image.

Re: Tundra Swans

Terrific Tundra shots! Good variety of action. I took many BIFS of Tundras and Trumpeters this winter but none as good as yours. Thanks for posting these.

Re: On Golden Pond.

All great, Rodger, but that second one is wild! That is a great effect. Very nice job.

Re: My Bird Week !!!

Lee, you should do birds more often! These are some of the best Robin pics I've seen. The second Robin is my fav. Nice job on the BIFs and that Swan is especially appealing.

Re: Few from Zoo

Another great set, ANAYV. You are the Zoo master! Wonderful close ups, particular fond of the Peregrine.

Re: FOR THE BIRDS

Fine set, Jerry, particular like the first Towhee. We have Spotted Towhees here but they look very similar.

The light looks pretty good in all of them Vickie. You never know what you're going to find do you? Looks like you found a few good things. How did you spot the bobcat in the tree? Excellent shots.

Thanks, Rodger. No, you never know what you will find. That's why we always have a camera with us, right?

When I heard the crows fussing, I walked over to that area. They and other varied birds were perched or flying about that section of tree so I knew generally where to scan with the binoculars. At first I didn't see anything, it took awhile but finally saw a mass and with focusing saw it looked like fur. From a different vantage point I found the head. This is where EZ zoom and small spot focus is indispensable to thread focusing through the twigs and branches.
