  2. I think we all know that type of situation all too well. Sometimes we have to take what we get, which in this case is still a nice photo. ?
  3. Ummm, at 400mm you could have reduced the zoom to 300mm, or less, couldn't you? ? I know, I know, I tend to forget that my zoom lens has a short end too. ?
  4. Red-winged Blackbirds have yellow edging on the red patchs of their wings, @Gman68, sometimes showing only the yellow while the red is hidden under other feathers. They can show or hide the wing patch as desired so the colors aren't always as bold or noticable as they can be.

  7. Bird netting or Anti-bird netting, depending on the label, might be a cheap solution @LiamT. The idea is to hang the netting a few inches in front of the window. The birds can't fly through it, but you'll be able to see through it. I've never tried it but I've read many stories, some promotional, about this method being most successful. https://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/learn/top10/windowstrikes.php

  13. We weren't that fortunate. Our mom made us wear 20 pound boots straped to each foot just so she wouldn't have to drive us to the hospital because of our frost bitten toes.
  14. Childhood winters in the Great White North involved hours of walking to and from school in three feet of snow...uphill...both ways.
