Right... American Crow.

Um... I don't think there's any US crow with a pale eye. This is a grackle of some kind - Boat-tailed, I think.

Nice Justin. I like all the color, and sharpness of the chickadee.

Haven't been in the field for a while as my eyes have really deteriorated since they measured me up for a cataract op which I'm having on Monday and I'm not allowed to drive. A$2.5K for each eye but I can't get the 2nd eye done till after the new year so I don't know if I'll be posting much as I'm even having difficulty reading text. Someone said to me that it'll be the best lens I ever bought so I hope so at those prices :-)

I got these in the garden this morning and I'm thinking that perhaps I should have shot jpg as I can't trust my PP at the moment but anyways, they tell a story. The birds are loving my new bird bath :-)

Nice shot on the wet birds, Kevin. :-) I wish you the very best with your cataract surgery Monday, and I think you'll be amazed at how much your vision will improve. I had one eye done some time back, and I'll be having my other eye done soon. You'll be "back in the saddle" in no time at all.
