Mixed bag of birds

  1. Still praticing on bird shooting and of course patience, I was lucky to run into these birds. The northern flicker was digging in the grass for worms and I was laying on the ground. Dang the grass is still wet from yesterday rain.

    excellent. Which lens? Can you get us a shot of that heron entering the nesting box? Now that would be a great shot :lol:
     
  3. Hi Greg, these pictures wera taken with a Sigma 100-300mm f/4. I don't think the heron could enter the box since he is too big for the hole :)  . These boxes wera installed around a lake for tree swallows nesting. Thanks for the kind words.
     
  4. Hi Dao! I luv the shots of the flickers, especially made the perspective in getting to the ground. yes I know wet grass, yuck, but it was worth the effort. Well done!!

  7. Hi Daodang, very sharp and clear. It looks so clear that it looks like an ant on the second Flickers neck.
