That is an amazing series of captures. All of that in one weekend is incredible.

I must say I concur. And also that Bluejay shot is magnificent. The color combo with the lilacs is stunning.

I believe the Pileated is my favorite too. One reason because I have only seen one maybe 3 or four times in my life...usually while deer hunting or riding my bike on the Katy Trail and no camera. They are beautiful to watch flying. Your Blue Jay is remarkable also. I see them around here all the time. Yours seems to have more white on his face than mine. We have a million Sparrows, but your other birds I ahve never seen. All great shots.

A super nice series of images here Wayne. Where did you see the indigo Bunting? I was not even certain they extended this far north. The Magnolia Warbler is very nice ( great find) and the RBG is very nice and in a nice habitat,,,very nice Pileated and the Bluejay with the flowers is also great,,,they are all great. Nice work!

Very nice series Wayne. At first I liked the Blue Jay shot best, but now I think I'll go with the Grosbeak...excellent pose and great habitat.

I can understand why you are proud of the Pileated.

There isn't one I don't like there, Wayne. Wow! I like the colors in the Blue jay shot, but they could all be favorites.
