Can't help with the IDs, but nice captures. You can probably get them used to having you around so that even the 200 would be just fine.

Thanks for the tips. glad i didn't do anything stupid to scare them :lol:
they are truly amazing, and each of them have different character as well
#3 is the bravest of them all while #1 is the most cautious :D

it is surprising they are the smallest bird of all but the closest I could get with. my 200mm could only capture pigeons before these shots

With a crop that third would be brilliant!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Very nice. If you spend some time just sitting out there, they will get used to you and let you get pretty close. They are confident little things, especially if you move very slowly. Probably because they are so fast they can get away from a threat and they know it. I can sit about 8-10 feet from my feeder now, could get closer but not with the lens I'm using. I have a few the shutter noise will still startle a little but they won't fly off, and other's don't react at all.
