Thanks for feedback. First 4 with the DA 300. Cropped a little. The last 2 are with the Sigma 150-500, with the last one being a vertical crop of an original horizontal image

Oh well no point in my keeping the K3 now, you've got the shots I want (especially the Nuthatch). Is it me because, strangely, they seem to look better here than on flickr.

K3 out resolves flickr?

Very nice, and great PP technique. Can you share some details on how you got these shots? At 300mm you had to be pretty darn close to these birds.

Great shots.
You dived right in with the camera and came up with some winners.
I guess this isn't your first time birding
