Thanks Gail, a lot of people say that about the Acorns. They are sure the Clowns of the bird world. They can chatter up a storm and bob up and down. Really a cute bird to observe. One of my favorite models at the waterhole!:D

Gorgeous shots Steve....wonderful lighting, detail and bg on both. I'm liking that magic perch more and more with each shot you post.

Thanks Sharon, the perch is doing a great job of drawing in the birds. This next week I hope to get some new models.:D

Ha..ha.. If it were a Western Teenager it would have earphones and an Ipod. I don't see many without them. If I were younger I would invest in a hearing aid company and make a killing in about 10 years. Thanks Mike!

Both of them are good photographs Steve but the Tanager is outstanding. I've never seen one so I'm grateful you posted this one. We have Scarlets and Summers but no Westerners.
