I hope you don't mind a little indulgence tonight. I took the new lens outside and photographed whatever came near me. It's an off brand 500mm but it is sweet. :wink: I owned one of these a few years back and regretted ever selling it so I decided to get another one. This Bluebird flew up on the fence so he had the distinction of being the first subject photographed. I'm HUNGRY !!! (sorry about the perch but that's where he was) I'm not your mother but I will feed you anyway. Cowbirds lay their eggs in other species nests and they are raised by whatever bird happens to hatch them. The Sparrow's were the lucky family here. Went over near the feeder and this Cardinal was kind enough to give me one shot at him.
