Very fine - especially the Cardinals.

Been trying for ages and still don't have a decent shot of a Cardinal.

I got the shot my playing there call on my iphone and placing it in the tree. I was told this on Friday and didnt really believe him but I tried it and was shocked it would work even beter if I had camo on. Also it will work better at different times in the season I have heard its good for finding Owls. He also said placing food would help also by keeping them around.

Love them! You did much better with the reds of the Cardinal than I usually do. Nice shooting!

I wouldn't have believed it either. Amazing! That explains the quizzical look in the third shot. That's a tip I will definitely file away for future use.

This is an excellent set, tack sharp and with interesting "poses" and compositions. And great lighting -- lovely soft light in the cardinal shots, and direct light at a great angle to show detail and a perfect glow in the eyes in the Killdeer and Brown Thrasher (?) shots.
