you have a great selection of birds thats for sure. They are all tough to get and in low light even tougher. I think you have a good start. You need a quicker shutter speed unless you are looking for the motion/movement of the shot. I like Bluejay 1 best of the bunch as it seems to catch the flight. Good start keep at it.

Thanks Pat, after looking at these I realized that I had left the camera in M and not Tv, there is always next time.

Thanks Dave, I like #2 as well, however, this is a pretty large crop as the bird was in the upper right corner of the original frame.

I like the Bluejay in the third photo. It's "moving" .
