I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Dont you hate to follow Shooz and Rawshorty!

Well for last week and a half I've been setting up the bird studio hoping for a J.
Perches/background/foo​d/fly-ways/etc.

So someone hit my car, backed into it in a parking lot.....so I'm walking to the car to drive it to the repair shop.
What lands on a limb 20 feet from me? Yep, but a crap perch and too many focus points chosen BUT, and how often does
this happen, he flies and lands on a much better perch!
I'm telling ya good vodka is the reason ;)

Nice shot of the J! As the old saying goes "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry". Agree on the good vodka. 8-)

Eastern Towhee. Enigmatic birds, their call is an inquisitive salutation. They are very bold and companionable, but not in an annoying Catbird sort of way.

I gave the 500 II the day off, and instead ventured out with the fantastic 100-400 II. A little noisier IQ, in exchange for a much lighter load, some days it's worth the trade off.
