Much more colorful this time of year than in the spring. Scissor-tailed flycatcher and they just wouldn't fly.

First outing with my new EF100-400mm L II lens. The quality blows my old Tamron 70-300 away. The bird is a Pine Warbler, but I am not to sure on that ID. Feel free to correct me.

Great shots. This little cutie is a Yellow-rumped Warbler. A juvenile, I believe. :-)

The nicely blurred background really highlights the bird.

I believe you are correct. I was half right at least.

Seriously gorgeous shot, Shalu. So sharp it hurts my eyes.  :p:lol:

I love the perch and colors here. Not many perches out there that a Hummer could bend:-)

Thank you, Pax!

For Shalu - and feathers. Probably a bit shy on magnification

Thank you, Richard! Love it!

"Shalu" is in Danish the phonetic pronunciation of Jaloux (jealous)…, and that is exactly the feeling I have...;o)) Wish that photo were mine...;o))

Thank you for the compliments and teaching us a bit Danish, Bjarne!

Nice one Dave... I’ve been trying for a long time to get a decent shot of one but they are kinda shy around here.
