I set up my 5DIV & 70-200 on a tripod and triggered it remotely...a bit hit and miss, the birds didn't much like the shutter sound. I aimed at a small branch just to the side of a feeder which the birds use as a landing stage to get to the feeders. Quite happy with the limited results.

You did well. Really nice, and I like your set up.
I'd be happy with these.

Very nice results. I've tried this but can never predict where the birds are going to perch, so it's always been a bit of a failure. Perhaps I need to ditch my iron feeder hangers and get hold of a dead tree! :-)

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

I watched for their favourite approach and leaving spots, it is very hit and miss though. There's a very timid Jay that comes into the garden which is my ultimate goal...he's very infrequent though so I could be at this a loooooong time!

We have since added a bird table on the left trunk...dead trees can be quite useful!

Very nice results. One suggestion I'd make is remove the twig/branch in the background as it's spoiling the shots IMO
