Looks more like a Whistler or similar to me, could be the angle but it looks to robust to be a robin. Maybe. Don't have a my book with me.

Cheers. Any input welcome. I checked both my books, closest I could find.

Looks good for immature Rose to me. Not 100% though


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Thank you Sir. It took a wee bit of sneaking around in some bushes to catch them!

Are you guys waiting for the small birds to come to you or do you walk around and stalk them? I can never seem to get that close! Or are you doing some heavy cropping?

For me it is a combination of all three, sometimes i wait, sometimes i stalk and sometimes i crop.
It all depends on the bird, Robins for example i find very easy to just walk straight up to them.

If you see a group of birds feeding in a tree watch for the direction they go when they move and then scope the area ahead of them and stand still and wait for them to arrive is a good method, and then if all else fails crop the crap out of the pic.:lol:

Similar to Rawshorty a combination. All my small bird pics are cropped, some more than others. eg the Zebra Finches above,

I knew there were a flock who hang out near that bush, I've seen them there before.
(always handy to scope a few places, just keep your eyes open)

I drove to the spot & waited until I saw some flitting about.
(its amazing how some birds will approach a car, but not a person)

I got out of the car & stalked up to them, using the bush as cover
(from memory I was about 3 - 4 metres from them)

I cropped the pics in post, to get a frame I am happy with.
(a full frame on my 5d is 5760x3840, the portrait shot is 1600x2134 the landscape shot is 2000x1125)

Hope this helps.

Same for me as Gb and rawshorty, sometimes you also just get lucky, Not long ago I went looking for Western Yellow Robins, didn't see one for hours, was getting ready to give up and head back to the car, was walking along when I heard a bird chirping at me, looked up and right above my head was a Yellow Robin, he stayed put and let me get off some good shots, couldn't believe my luck, but even though I was close I still cropped the photos to some extent to suit my personal taste.
Cheers
Gus
