    I have no idea what kinda bird this is, a budgee or canary of some sort?
    It's a male American Goldfinch, I believe. Some people call them "wild canaries," but that's really a misnomer, as they aren't closely related to canaries - it's just about the bright yellow color.

    And it's a very nice shot. :-)

    I rarely get bird shots and certainly none to match all your super shots. However I do browse this thread often and never cease to be amazed.

    Here is a shot of a robin on a wet lawn. Canon A80 with zoom, f/4.9, exp. 1/100s.

    love that owl val!

    I was able to capture these geese today on my lunch break. I know it is a little soft and a little grainy and the bird on the left gets cut off but i had to react quick and i didn't have time to set the setting properly, as i was shooting something else at the time. Also the lighting wasn't the greatest, the sky looked blown out so i just put a gradient in the background.

    Well done at getting the shot...great feather detail....I know how difficult it is to get birds in flight I have been trying all evening! No luck! Oh well theres always tomorrow........
