A couple of birds from today
Posted By: Andrew Faires, 02-10-2007, 08:36 PM

Well, the day went from sunshine to white-out conditions and then back to sunshine a couple of times. Would have lasted longer too, had the Coopers Hawk not come by for a snack of Mourning Dove (while I was downloading the first batch of images to my portable hard drive, hence no pictures of the hawk )

First, the Northern Cardinal:

And then the Blue Jay:

I should also mention that with these shots, I used the K10D, FA*400mm f/5.6 wide open with a tamron 1.4x teleconverter. All of this was mounted on my tripod....and all of this was covered in about 1/2 cm of snow at one point

I really like #1

Great shots, and I don't often see Cardinal photos posted...

Very nice Andrew - now get out there and take some more...

Thank you very much, Marc, Tom, James, Evolution & Eddie!

I'll see if I can sneak out between chores today, Marc

Tom & Evolution, the more I look at he Blue Jay, the more I laugh! He really does have a 'Don King'ish appearance
