This place is only a few blocks from home so I've got to where I know it pretty well. Today was a really good day as I got a couple of new species out of the more than twenty species I spotted in three hours.

Yellow Warbler - Dendroica petechia - Hard to catch this species sitting still.

MacGillivray's Warbler - Oporornis tolmiei - Not at all that common where I photograph.
Just a little soft.

Black Chin Hummingbird - Archilochus alexandri - This little male was caught in the 'wild' not in our backyard with the other moochers at the feeders.

OK Ivanq, if you're going to keep posting all these great bird species, you need to start hanging around the Lens Lust forum until you decide to buy a 600mm or 800mm lens so you can reach them up in those tree tops!

600mm

I doubt if I could hand hold that lens. But right now I waiting for the UPS guy who is bringing me a Nikon D7000.
