Default Birds: Few of my favorite feathered friends

Female Allen's Hummingbird




Black Phoebe - a very common insect catcher




Red Whiskered Bulbul - non-native in our area, apparently escaped and taken up residence in a local botanical garden. A healthy population living quite wild.

I can see why they are favourites saly — and good clear pics to boot.

Thanks, the hummer was a once in a life time shot - I was shooting closeups when she flew by. Just barely had enough time to remove my diopter to shoot this.

Hi saly

As others have said, all are lovely photos.

The flowers and 'action' of the first photo make it great for me.

For the third photo, I would have cropped off part of the left of the image, so the bird is sitting at the left 'third' position rather than the middle... might work better. But neverthe less, I think that 3rd bird is very attractive and interesting.
