Two beautifully photographed birds Shalu.
Love the Bushtit. Very nice.

The Bishop's are very pretty and colourful. (Hadn't realised they're imports according to Google)

Love the composition of both.

Very nice shot, with a great background, Shalu.

Very nice, Mike. The blue sky peeking thru looks very cool. We have a good number of black phoebes in my area. I really enjoy watching them.

fotoi...you truly are a master at capturing birds in the most beautiful water situations. This common ol' coot (mudhen) looks really cool in this buttery, swirling, golden water.

Love this shot, Bob. Nicely done. On my screen the first shot appeared a bit over sharpened, whereas this one appears perfect.

Terrific shot, Shalu, but it appears as though he's a bit peod at you.:-P :p

I love this one, Phil. The rusty old barbed-wire, and the spider webs make for a neat setting.

Perfect, Tom.

Absolutely beautiful, Shalu!!

Thank you Mike!

Nuthatch, One of those shots where you just focus on the stick sooner or later the bird will land on it.

your shutter speeds are so slow. i would'nt even dare to.

I really appreciate your comments, Mike. I've had good luck lately with interesting lighting.
