Well know the only reason I bought a D500 was so I could use the 500mm PF lens.
But the D500 (to my eye) isn't so bad! I say that as someone trying to learn Nikonian speak :)
This one from this morning before the Sun had crested the ridge.

Unlike Pondrader who can whisper them in, I had to use temptation!

Wonderful shot, Robert. The color and sharpness are wow.

Thanks Mike. I'm trying. A little Sun would go a long way here ;)

Lovely bird. Whilst the bright coloured Cardinals are spectacular, these stand out in my view. Beautiful colour variations.

Field sparrow

Rather cute little fella.
Sparrows. Somewhere they've got to be native. Certainly feathers, colours lot different to our English ones.

Western Yellow Wagtail

Quite a mix of colours there. Very pretty.

These three are, like others, very nicely portrayed in a natural looking setting.

That really is stunning. Bird holds its own but the photograph too. Very nice.
