  11. Thank you! I agree they can be hard to photograph...I got lucky with this shot...he landed right in front of me! 🙂
  12. Western Bluebird. 🙂 Lewis's Woodpecker. 🙂
  13. Bullock's Oriole. Birds are somewhat scarce in my area now but captured this beauty today. 🙂
  14. Yep, this is what I do sometimes too...if the subject is cooperating and time allows. My husband used to ask me, ''Do you really need 702 shots of the same bird? '' The answer, ''Absolutely! Out of 702 shots, there may be only 2 that are ''good''.'' 🙂 I just have a point and shoot [Olympus SP-565UZ] ...I set my camera to take 5m [2560x1920] photos which will make nice 5x7 photos if you want to print them. It also allows you to crop nicely without too much distortion or graininess. If I do crop a photo it is only to get rid of excess background usually and to make a better composition if I can. But, I always crop to an evenly sized frame 3m [2048x1536] or 2m [1600x1200]. I never just crop willy-nilly...the reason is that if you want to print them sometimes the photos are very poor quality. This is an example of how/why I crop. The original photo is not what I would call desirable. 🙂
  15. It is a Bullock's Oriole's nest. 🙂
  16. Good Morning Class, here's today's geography/history lesson, lol! 🙂 Twelve US states have a city/town called Philadelphia as do these countries... Brazil, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Turkey, Paraguay, Namibia, Liberia, Jordan, Jamaica, Germany, and Costa Rica. Who knew??
  17. Probably a long shot but... Could the bill be stained due to the bird eating red berries or some kind of red fruit? How about a European Starling with a stained bill? 🙂
