I try every chance I get to practice using the camera. I live on 4 acres, mostly wooded and the birds are hard to catch and the light is a bit dim. I am trying to lure them to a more open area with additional feeders. Donna

My guess is that will work. Probably take a little while for them to get used to the idea of food available in a different place.

Donna, looks like you aregiving the 30D a work out.

Just a suggestion on the feeders.......instead of trying to get them in the open, you may have better success to set them close to cover but situated where you have an open area behind the bird. Some will still visit of course, but if close to cover theyfeelmore secure and will probably give you more opportunities.

The only lens I have for birding now is a 70-300mm 5.6 (I bought the 17-40L and the f/1.4 50mm) Is that lens any good, maybe just in bright light...? Donna
