    Didn't make it to the pond today but did catch a couple in the back yard/

    I think this first one is a rufus sided towhee, female perhaps. wish I could have caught all of her. normally a ground bird.

    Just couldn't stand it huh??

    Very nice songbird captures. Never seen that first species before.
     
  3. I think you're right. Notice her right pinky is extended. Sorry, couldn't resist. :wink: Nice shots though, especially the cardinal.

    Noticed that you're from Fayetteville. My wife's uncle and his wife live there. His now-deceased wife used to run an insurance agency there. Nice countryside.
     
  4. Nice shots Greg. The female cardinal shot is very detailed. Impressive!! :D :D :D
     
  5. We call them spotted Towhees around here, named I guess for the white spots on the black feathers on the outer wings.
     
  6. That is a Towhee but its a male! The female is brown on the head, not black. Nice shot!
