    Any help on the fist bird ID would be appreciated. This is the first time I've seen him/her near my feeders.

    Comments welcome. I'm trying to improve my technique.

    Nice set, Chris. The first one is a female Brown-headed Cowbird.
     
  4. Good work Chris!

    A couple of tips for you to work on. Try composing so the head of the bird is not "leaving" the photo (your 3rd and 4th are good) and try for clean backgrounds like your first one.

    Again, this is really good work - I'm looking forward to seeing more...

    Thanks Rory, Debbie & Gale. This was the first week that I've noticed the Cowbirds and my book didn't have a picture of a female. Thanks for the help.

    Rory - thanks for the tips.

    Best,

    Chris
