Then I will add you on Flickr to keep seeing your bird shots!

A wise decision. You can eventualy knock down a brick wall by banging your head against it, but there are better ways of doing it.
Here are three from yesterday at Le Teich on the Bassin d'Arcachon in SW France. There was not much to be seen, and after one attempt at BIF with the M1 it went back in the bag in disgust. After a year of struggling with the Oly I had almost forgotten how easy life is with the Canon. Other images will eventually appear on Flickr. I am not very happy with these from the 75-300mm but I am not spending any more cash with Olympus.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Some more slide copies. Three from Saskatchewan in the 90's.



A female Pine Grosbeak portrait. Snowing with terrible light but I had a few hours to kill.



A male Evening Grosbeak. Taken at the same time as the Pine Grosbeak.



A Pine Siskin in the autumn. There was some discussion about Siskins on here a while back so I thought I'd post this. A very variable species, males have varying amounts of yellow, females can vary between quite light to quite dark.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Unusual shot of a Goldcrest.. This littleun hit our lounge window and knocked itself out. Debs gently cupped it in her hands until it came around, and then it posed before flying off.

Wonderful story. Glad it was OK.

It does seem to have rewarded her with a small 'bird present' on her palm Or maybe not, just above the ring in the out of focus bit... i'll get my coat.

You are absolutely right, a nice way to say "Thanks"

Spring is knocking on the door, the first Goldcrests have already arrived.

Nice setting with the lichen on the branches. We were getting a few spring arrivals a few days ago but winter has returned, our high today was -3°C with a wind chill of -8.

Probably my favourite bird, Tord. And I love these gentle colours.

Blackcap female by Huw Prosser, on Flickr
By a strange coincidence I just copied a couple of slides of a wintering female Blackcap feeding on a windfall apple taken in the early '90s. There seems to be more overwintering every year.
