Red Eyed Vireo

Discussion in 'Birds' started by andreasb, Jun 27, 2007.

  1. I went out with TimZ to see if we could get some picutres of a reported Red Eyed Vireo, that had been seen here. They are an uncommon sight here in the PNW.

    They are very quick to jum to the next branch and a hard act to follow, here are a few acceptable shots:

    We have a white eyed Vireo down here

    Lovely images, they are so sharp. What lens were you using?
  9. Thank you for looking Robert! This one was shot with a D200 and a Nikon 300mm F2.8 AF-S II, with a TC17EII converter, sitting on a Full Wimberley and a Gitzo G5540LS tripod.

    I dont think they are that sharp. Given better conditions I can get sharper images.

  10. Thanks Gary, Yes It took awhile, it was hopping behind leaves, only once in a while coming out in the light, I have many dark or blurry shots that I deleted....

    Thanks Frank, But given great conditions we can do a little bit better...
    Thanks, No time to call it anything, just busy holding the trigger down..:smile:
    Thank you Louie!!! To bad the left foot is hid by a leaf!
    Thank you Bob!
    Thank you Antony, most of these are not cropped at all.

    Intentional or not the framing on that first shot is real neat!
