    Wow. Great variety. I really like the male redstart. Im pretty sure number 4 is a warbler and not a Goldfinch though. It doesnt have a finch style beak.

    And another WOW! Great photos. Are you using a blind to get these great photos?

  6. Debbie,

  7. My favorite is the carolina wren. Beautiful feather detail.
  8. The wren is really nice with the detail. The first redstart is really nice and I thought the tanager bathing was a super shot as well. What's your setup? Looks like 1 or more flashes involved. Curious, as your shots are much better than my backyard birds . . . of course they are going south now from here. My feeders are busy though.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Dianne, September is the best time of the year to be here. Maybe one day you will have the opportunity to come down here. I would like to meet you in person. You are one of the nicest person here.

    Number 4 is a juvenile American Goldfinch.

    I am not using a blind at this time.

    Al, I was using only one flash but today I am using two. I am using the Canon 40D with the Canon 100-400mm lens.
