    Sorry to hear you are under the weather Mike :>))

    Had that myself. eckkkk.. Feeling pretty good now though.

    Nice little birdies.

    I shot a little tiny bird at Vieraville while i was focusing on a snowey, it just got in my field of view so changed and shot it, but don't know what it is.

    I will post it and maybe we can figure out what it is. Also have a little duck I don't know what it is. Guess I will just post both and see what we have.

    Great shots as usual.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hope you feel all better real soon

    cheers

    Mike -

    Great captures, as usual! Sorry to hear you were sick. I think you might have gotted better quicker if you had just gone out on your porch sooner and watched and shot these little guys. What a great setup you have! I'm jealous.

    Hope you are 100% soon.

    Cheers,
    Gordon

    Mike,

    Excellent (again....;-)). I keep waiting for this to get old, but so far, there are no signs. 8) I was driving home today, and saw a beautiful Redtail flying along beside me. I immediately started looking for a place to pull over, when I realized that I was in the middle of rush-hour traffic, and that I was going to get run over.... :lol:

    Thanks for the inspiration. :p

    Mike, hope you're feeling better.

    Love the Goldfinch image - looks like it's coyly looking over its shoulder at you with a come-hither look. ;)

    These are beauties, Mike. Not bad for a recovering sickie. Love the pose in #1, and the pine as a perch in the last, especially.
