Very nice shots, Wallace. I sure wish we had your blue jays out here. They are such a neat bird.

Jack, this is such a cool shot. The subdued color is really pretty looking, and the detail is great.

Nice shot Bjarne. That bird is a male Brewer's blackbird; a commonly seen blackbird around these parts.

Enjoy.

This is a seriously nice shot Ted. Catching him in this stretching pose is really cool. Also, the composition and sharpness are great.

That is really beautiful. Such a lovely setting. Owl sits at its front door.
Amazing photo, beautifully composed.

That's a rather gorgeous little bird. Thanks for adding to the collection.
Lovely composition.

Lovely composition. Interesting bird. Love the grasses or small plants it's sitting in. All adds to the appeal.

Momma mallard is the 2nd from the right, and closest to the viewers. She has successfully reared 8 young which will soon be getting their adult plumage. So, not counting momma, how many of the young will be drakes and how many will be hens?
