    Cool! The mockingbird is the Tennessee State Bird also. I hope to get a few shots soon for a friend of mine who uses my pics as models for her drawings/paintings.

    Thanks Val. Just curious... what sort of feeding station do you have set up there? I was just trying to make heads or tails of what's beneath the robin and I can't figure it out. BTW, nice pics of a cute little bird. I think our American Robin would make 3 of that little bird! Is your Robin really that small or is it just my interpretation?

    Thanks guys .....the feeding station consists of a log that we dragged back from the forest at the weekend , it has some great hollows it it for putting feed. The idea is to get the birds used to it then put the feed out of site in the hollows to try and get a 'natural shot'. It is also great for the insect feeders as the insects like the rotting wood..guess not so good for the insects

    Here is another trio taken on the log feeder, this time greenfinch, shots not as good as the robins but this guy was very fast and a bit nervous so was moving quite a bit. All shots are taken in Raw format at about 1/60, ISO 400 and at the full 500mm end of the lens.

    Hope you like........

    That log is a good idea, Val. I need to remember that one. I made a suet feeder with hopes of getting some more natural woodpecker pics (if they ever arrive to my feeders this year). Haven't seen the first one yet. But I saw a feeder just like this only without the bark on the net for $25! I made one for about 50 cents! I cut a fallen tree/branch about 3 or 4 inch diameter, and about 10 to 12 inches long... put a screw hook in the top for hanging and bored some holes in one side to stuff suet in. It's ready for when the Woodys decide to visit. Here's a pic of my masterpiece.



    I also made a fruit feeder for spring. Not quite so 'natural' looking, but cheap and easy. Cost me about $1.50 for a piece of chain and some heavy copper wire. Here it is. Keep in mind there's some extra chain there that I haven't trimmed yet, but you get the idea.
