It's full sun but a bit cold today in Montreal. After cloudy and rainy weeks, it's quite reviving to have such a day.

Some redhats

Hey Dao Dang, the last shot knocks me out. It's one pretty bird. I've never seen one like it. The second one looks like it's from the sparrow family.
good going.

Dao,

Great shots! I'm not an expert, but the second from last one looks like a White-crowned Sparrow. I'm pretty sure the last one is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dao, great shots! That sparrow is a White-crowned Sparrow, and the last is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, as Dennis correctly said. Beautiful bird!

With its rose breast, this bird really «catch the eyes». I was concentrating on the redhats when I notice something red flights in on my right side.

Look what I found on page 2 :>)))

Sometimes so many posts, I have to go hunting to see what I missed.

Folks should wander back a few pages once in awhile.

Very beautiful birds and great shots Dao.

Thank you for sharing.

Dao;

Those are wonderful shots. I don't know much about birds, but I know these are beautiful.

What lens(es) did you use?

Brian
Hi Brian, thanks for the kind words. I used a Sigma 100-300mm f/4 for these pictures. it's a sharp lens but not quite as the Nikon 300mm /2.8. However, the price tag is not the same :)
