Nice shot. Always makes me happy when the Yellow-Headed and Red Wing blackbirds make it back.

Tough, tough bird to pin down, congrats on this clean shot!

BDub Warblers are next level difficult too, they’re like Nuthatches but with advanced evasion capabilities. Very nice!

Cape May Warblers, male (top) and female

I much prefer yours to mine, Steve! Nice and clear, unobstructed views.

Nice shots, Matthew. I mentioned to someone else in your neck of the woods that it didn't take them long to travel from Texas.

Thank you, Bill! It is crazy how fast they can move in such a short time.

Nice water feature, have a feeling you’re going to get a lot of business there. Someday I hope to be able to have a nice yard where I can make one of my own.

Nice shots considering the conditions. Tough to get any kind of unobstructed view, much less one with the lighting at a good angle. But Capr Mays are regular visitors to your yard, so I can't work up too much sympathy:lol:.

This tree out back here is a warbler magnet, it seems to get 4-5 different species each migration. Big star last year was a Blackpoll; haven’t seen him this year yet though. It’s a double edged sword though, as it can make me lazy and not want to go out hunting, and my shots all look the same. It’s so nice just opening the back window though!

These are lovely captures, Matt! I'm glad you had such a joyous day in the rain with your camera. I've never been one to like shooting in the rain, but after reading your very enjoyable narration, I'm going to do a bit of rain shooting:-)...or perhaps drizzles to start with.;-)a

Mike, you must try it! Try to go out as the rain starts to taper off, and you’ll see the bird re-emerge in order to fuel up. These days, I don’t even bother going out of its perfectly sunny, I wait for rain in the forecast :) Get a LensCoat Raincoat, and you’ll be all set.

Another migrant that I see here in the Spring is the Solitary Sandpiper. This one has been hanging out in a retention pond out behind the neighborhood, and getting close without scaring him off was a puzzle because the pond is tiny (probably 20 feet across, barely an inch deep), sloped on the sides, so he could see me coming from a mile away, and would fly off. I knew he'd come back, so I went and laid down in the muck at waterside, waited 20-30 minutes, and eventually he returned.

Thank you Matt, I'll give it a try. The only problem is the drought we are currently experiencing in California. We haven't seen rain in a long time. And it's not likely we'll see any until this fall.

This is definitely a 3D shot, Sid! The bird is so sharp and alive looking! Incredible!

You are one very determined photographer, Matt. The shot of this solitary sandpiper is great!

Your second shot, the northern parula, is awesome! Congratulations on your first!

This is a beautiful heron, Ed. Very nice capture!

an unusual (for me) and beautiful bird.
Very nicely composed. Really stands out from the surroundings.

Matthew you really make these not-so-good weather shots shine, and these are so nice.
The depth and richness of colours are so nice.
Both are exceptional images

Tasmanian Magpie
not sure if this is same as previous one with a wasp I posted here, but this was today and it went straight to the same spot and took off with it's prey.
It caught me by surprise with too much zoom :rolleyes:
