They are great finds! Especially if you see 'em in action, talk about watching a shrub full of small birds scatter!

It's not often I'm able to take photo's of a bird with a 200mm lens. The light was poor and this beautiful female black redstart was reasonably close to me so I tried with an aperture of f/2.2 to get the speed up and to blow the background out completely.

Whilst checking the captures on my camera screen, some movement to the right of me caught my eye. I could not believe my luck it was a 2nd one but slightly darker, possibly a juvenile male, I'm not sure. Nether-the-less it was lovely to watch the 2 birds chase each other around and it really made my day.
Thank you for looking ...Paul

800mm handheld at 1/80th? Crumbs! You have an incredibly steady hand.
