    I was a bit surprised to find the fella sitting along the edge of the almost totally frozen Merrimack River today...at least he was soaking up a bit of the sun!....

    Also..a quacker shot and a really purty northern mockingbird.

  6. Beautiful shots Jim. I love the way the Mockingbird is fluffed out against the cold. Excellent.

    Hi SSchex

    The mockingbird...actually all of the shots were with a 500 AFSII and TC14EII.

    I was probably 30' from the mockingbird. Fortunately he was cold and soaking up the sun so he wasn't inclined to fly away :)
     
  9. Now obviously these aren't Japanese birds! ;)

    Nice shots Jim! Especially like the background on #3

    Good stuff I am amazed at how dull looking the GBH's are around here I guess due to change in temp and diet. Love the mockingbird I have seen so many of these around this winter.
