    What a catch Gary! I've seen a few in my day but never have I taken a photo of one.

    Wow Gary, what an interesting looking species. The coloration is remarkable. I doubt that I have ever heard of these before.
     
  9. I had to have help finding the bird in the book and then I thought they were pulling my leg but no it was there just as plane as day

    Really like the branch shadows, gives the image dimension for me.

    Very nice image.

    Holy Moly Gary, where in the heck did you get this?? I had no idea that we had this species in our region. I'm both impressed and intrigued.

    Can you take me there? :biggrin:
     
  13. well, i have no idea about bird IDs...
    but these are nice images.

    TFS,

    rgds,
     
  14. I'm sure they will be around for a least a few weeks but random flights, not those sure things like I have had.
     

  15. He never would come out but I kind of like the effect as well.
     
  16. I did not even know what it was, in fact when I got the ID I thought someone was pulling my leg. I looked it up and was surprised to find it clearly in the book. First one I've knowingly seen.

    Try Buck Island!!
     
  17. "The birds & animals images posted by me, have all been shot in the wild and none of them are captive images"

    I agree with this and would add that no baits or feeders are used.

    Thanks
