We've got a pair in our backyard, but they are too nervous to stay at the feeder long. This one is a little browner than the female that we have.

One of these days Iíll get a picture of them. I can only hope it is as good as this one. I like the crest standing up.

Kevin,

Wonderful body of work on birds. Your backyard has to be one of the most prolific bird sanctuaries.

Aloha

As always, thanks for the compliments!! Our backyard is actually quite small about 30x50 but there are a lot of shrubs, trees, flowers, etc. to attract visitors. There are quite a number of feeders placed around the area along with some strategically placed perches near the feeders. One of the biggest attractants is a birdbath, ours has a dripper and a sort of artificial stone piece that houses a small pump. The gurgling sounds and the moving water are like a bird magnet!!

Selvin, thanks for the kind words! Your shot of the Napali Coast makes me want to get on a plane!! What's it like to live in "Paradise"??

Eric, I've found our Cardinals to be among the most "nervous" visitors, but since we are outside a great deal tending the feeders etc., I beleive that all the visitors are becoming acclimated to human presence and don't consider us much of a threat.

Frank & Klaus, thanks as always!!

You definitely should get a book published with all your beautiful photographs. They are so eye-catching!

Martin, thanks for the compliments!! They are greatly appreciated. I am indeed fortunate to have access to top-notch equipment.

Hi again Tracey and thanks, don't think there's a book in the near future but the print sales at the art fairs are steadily increasing. At this rate all the equipment will be paid for around 2050 :lol:
