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?"!!!
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...
