I had just finished watching my National Geographic video from Netflix, and became inspired to shoot some wild-life. I only have birds at the house, so they would have to do for now.:lol: I love taking pictures of birds, but I need more practice to get it to the caliber you all have.

Thanks for looking.

If you hang that from a branch of a small tree where the light is good, the birds will land on the tree first, and that's where you shoot them. :)

Your finches look a little different than ours do though.

Thanks for the advice. The only bad thing is that I have no tree's in the back yard that are worth hanging the feeder on. I chose this location because it has more light during most of the day. Maybe I should look into moving it around a little?

I just saw you live in Southern California, so your ground isn't frozen. Go find some dead sticks to push into the ground near the socks. Poke them in at an angle and with a nice background and light, and the birds will use them.

That's why you get paid the big money, great idea. I am off to work now, but first thing in the morning I am off to the hills behind my house to do just that.

Thanks again.
