Yes!  It seems like it should be easy because they're not too afraid of humans, but they just don't go where you want them to go!

They are deceptively quick, often in shade for me and the focus system struggles between the bird and the bark.

Typical example attached - tree reasonably in focus but bird blurred so 1/800 not fast enough? I will try to do better.

I've only seen them a few times do to that there some what rare here, but the ones I have seen are always going round and round the trees, or limbs. So about the time I spot one they are on the other side, then pop out again, two feet up(or down!).

I will try to pick birds that are fairly wide spread in their range, so hopefully most people have seen them.

You sure are good at picking the harder birds to photograph, Kevin 🙂  I finally got a decent shot this past Fall 🙂

 

If you would like, I would be glad for you to pick next weeks bird.😁
