  3. Wonderful wonderful images, Mike! I just love the robin and the cardinal. Send that robin up north when you're finished with him - my favourite bird.
    You've mastered the art of fill flash - barely perceptible. :smile:

    Excellent series of images Mike!!

    I would love to have this many species in my yard. Anymore, all we ever seem to see are house sparrows and an occasional cardinal.
