    This is my birdfeeder setup. It seems to make them all happy. The nuthatch likes to crawl around on it. The chickadees perch on the branch and the Blue Jays sit on top. The doves just peck away from the base. If only I could interest a cardinal.
    That's a pretty cool setup. I would have never thought to put out mu own trees /branches.

    WOW! Gordon, those eagle shots are amazing and so sharp! I especially like the first photo. Could you post the exif data?

    Do pet parrot pics count? Here's one of my Greencheek conure, Bandit.

    Nikon D40@50mm, ISO 400, F/8, 1/60th sec, handheld

    C & C most welcome - no matter how harsh, as it helps me learn.

    Thanks Sharon, I've added the Exif to my post.

    That's a great shot of your Parrot I hope to get a 50mm 1.4 or 1.7 for my Pentax that's if I don't keep getting sniped on eBay.

    He's not as close to girl as it looks in picture so he does look huge though I must admit they are larger than i thought!

    Here's a couple more.. hope you don't mind.





    The portrait is heavily cropped so I don't think it would hold up very well to printing unfortunately.

    Gordon you might want to check out a small program called Genuine Fractals. It is pretty good in creating larger files from small ones without losing integrity of the original. Something like 8X blowups are possible.

    Thanks, Gordon, for posting exif data. I'm new to photography, so exif data in photos that catch my eye help a lot in the learning process. Thanks for the compliment, as well. It was taken with the kit lens, but I'll be picking up the 50mm 1.8 soon....can't wait to practise manual focus! Btw, that 'take off' photo is excellent! Such majestic creatures.
