    Default Other Birds

    Since I'm totally jealous of all the great loon pictures in the other thread, I thought I'd start my own. I hung around the house this weekend and caught these two visiting my feeders.

    Northern Cardinal Cardinalis cardinalis

    Beautiful pictures Kevin!!!

    I love how puffed up the Blue Jays get when it's really cold outside!

    Nice shots Kevin. Great having these guys outside the window on a cold winter day. That's the fluffiest Bluejay I've ever seen...

    Kevin, don't you have an image of a silouetted bird high in the air with clouds colored by a summer sunset? The image is in my memory but I forget where I saw it. I think it's yours.

    Great shots again. How close were these birds to you and did you use your Nikon?

    I know I have posted these on another thread but they are on topic for this one. Love having these little guys around in the winter.

    Looking forward to seeing more great bird shots here.

    All beautiful pictures. Of course I never have my camera ready when my wife fills the bird feeder. We do get some beautiful red Cardinals. Of couse we get about 3 times the amount of squrrels.I really like the owl picture great shot.

    More awesome pics here. I love the one from Tim (or is it Val) of the Grossbeak. Used to get these all the time in CT but I've never seen one since we've been in RI. Never see a Redpoll either - very cool.

    What's the bird in your first shot Brad? Beautiful picture whatever he is.
