Lovely set John, especially the K-F. I've never been able to get that close to one of these devils. :rolleyes:

Thanks Frank. I think she was too cold to move. There were many beak under the wing birds in the lee of the wind.

Hi John,

It is good to see some of the little guys, most of the time everyone seems to concentrate on the big birds. Nan & I try to get shots of the little birds too, but most are just good enough to look them up in Sibley for identification.

Bob, I would like to say that was planned but those big birds were pretty scarce. A little better once the ice melted in the mornings. I patiently waited for a certain GBH for two hours and the little guys begain to think I was tree and got fairly close.
 
These are beautiful, John! That Kingfisher is something else! You nailed that shot perfectly! I think you're right, it was so chilly that the birdies were all shivering and wondering if they had mysteriously been transported back up North instead of being in customarily warm, sunny Florida! I'll bet some of them were thinking, "and I migrated here for THIS?"!!!

Not up to your standards yet, Louie, but still practicing. I thought you were on the list again?

Connie, nice talking with you. Hope you enjoyed the cold. That is not the FL I know. Learned not to turn on the windshield washer in the morning.

I thought I had posted earlier - I really like the king and jay - the jay shots I'm seeing are funny and the king shots are far and few in-between - what a beak for a small body - thanks for sharing...

Good to see you as well and taste your cooking again. Hope you found a use for the Corona? You ever get over to Ding?

John:
Nice job on the "Tweety birds." Good to meet up with you and Carol at Harry's and the dinner. It sure was nicer over on the West coast; temps like I came to Florida to experience!

Thanks Dave, yes I am sure the birdies were liking the warmer weather as well. My thin blood was not happy with the temps either-several duck into the car to get warm moments.
