I love the use of complementary colors - red and green being opposite one another on the color wheel.

Great to see some color theory at work here in bird portraiture!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Perfect western kingbird shot, Bill!

Cool looking coot shot, fotoi. The swirls and colors in the water are beautiful.

Gorgeous Kingbird shot, SYS! the red branch really adds to the shot.

Excellent shot, Bill! I like his pose.

Lovely shot, fotoi! It has a quality of sereneness to it.

A couple of nice flight shots, Dom! You might want to post these two shots in the "Post Your Birds in Flight" thread.

Oh man, Sid...I love this shot!! There is no way to look at it without smiling.:-)

Excellent, SYS! A very sharp, crisp shot!

A truly stunning jay shot, Bill!! The colors are really nice.

Magnificent shot of this Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Bill!

This one is a beauty, Charles. Very nice photography!

Many thanks, Mike ~

I took this out my bedroom window this morning. This is the very top of my tree and over the past 6 weeks has attracted many different types of birds.
Long Tailed Tit.

I see many pipits but not many tree pipits. To be honest they all look the same to me. What gave this one away was it's song singing high up in the tree. He eventually came down to feed.

Cinnamon Teal.

Shot a couple weeks ago on a small lake about 15 miles from my home here in eastern Washington. . They're not big like Mallards, so even though I had the big 800mm zoomed all the way in, I still had to crop a bit to get this framing. . When I was shooting him, he seemed SO CLOSE, yet he still wasn't close enough for an uncropped image, even at 800mm!

My friend and I found two Cinnamon Teal nests in the marshy, grassy shore of the lake. . But the nests were in such thick grass that I couldn't figure out how to get good clear shots without disturbing the vegetation that protects them from predators, so we never went back to photograph the nests. . It would be awesome to have nest shots with ducklings halfway out of the egg shells, but not at the expense of the brood's well being. . So often, the most interesting photos exist only in my mind's eye, and will never become a reality :-(

Thanks.. I'd like to say that was planned out, but actually, I just hung a feeder under our tree and put a perch close by. This was just a lucky shot. I started not to post it as the leaves on the perch were dead and distracting, but this is my best Cardinal shot so far.

Thanks again.


Happy Shooting - Jamey
