    It is really wierd seeing these in trees - but getting to be that time of year. Close to 50 nests in the tree. Have to be careful where you walk as you position yourself under the tree for the shot.

    I've never seen one of those. Nice colors and contrast though.

    It's still winter around here, I haven't posted in the bird forum before but this was too good to leave alone. In fact, I didn't even edit it, just resized the raw file with irfanview.

    Plus, the one that got away (my sales plug for the E-620).

    Taken with my 70-300mm lens.

    Like shot 1 Raven, would prefer a slight digital crop to make them larger in the frame. 2 could have been a killer shot, oh well.

    We mainly have small birds around here at this time of the year: timouses (great and blue ones), black bird and of course sparrows. Here are some:

    Some seriously nice images there - I like them all in fact!
    I especially like the texture and sharpness of the 3rd image - very good indeed.
    Also - LOL to that 4th image - were you photographing with a friend? or
    do you have a foot in both camps??

    Thank you for the comments, I am delighted you liked them. I don't have a foot in but I have friends in both camps. In this particular case, teamwork was very efficient: Canon attracted the young "models", while Nikon did the job. As usual...

    We had a little heavy, wet snow in Atlanta today. It kept the birds at the feeders. The first one is our smallest bird; a kinglet. They are not much larger than hummingbirds. They show bright red spots on their heads when they get worked up. The female cardinal just looked less than thrilled to be out in the weather.

    I like the female cardinal one the most. Capture, colors, clarity and lighting are excellent!
    I think somehow I will have to build a feeder in my little backyard. For the
    moment my hunting (shooting) area is in city parcs. Here is another couple
    of examples...
