Great shots - keep them coming. Bushtits sure are photogenic little rascals when you can trick them into staying put. :idea:

They probably burn it up fast in the cold weather, but that gang bang at the suet feeder makes me wonder if they can suffer from hardening of the arteries! :G

These (and the others) make me want to delete the ones I posted a while back!

Penolta, thats lowfat Suet :G
The shots are of Bushtitswaiting for the next available spot on the feeder otherwise I'd have nothing but fluffy blurs. These guys don't stay still long...unless there's food involved. :lol:

Super shots of these little birds, Kent! From the looks of the Bushtits in the first one, I can imagine how the suet could be hidden behind bodies :lol: Nice job on all of these. That Towsend's Warbler is a pretty bird that I don't get to see.
Thanks Sabine,

I was able to draw the Townsends in with Peanut butter. The Townsends were kinda rare around here and I was very happy to get a shot of one. This year I have up to 6 visiting my feeder. I'll post some of the shotsI took in another post.

Excellent shooting, love that second pose with the eye, super. I also appreciate the first shot that puts things in perspective for me, one who has never seen these birds in action.

Just a wonderful and enjoyable series of birds to look at Kent! #1 reminds me of honey bees at an aviary. And your RB Nuthatch is the most striking pose /photo of one of them that I have ever seen. Absolutely great work! Cheers, Dan

Kent,
What an amazing series of shots. Those are all absolutely excellent. The evil-eyed fuzzy ping-pong ball is my favorite. I think I see an enlargement of that bird on a T-shirt with the caption "Bring it!" or maybe "You want a piece of me?" :lol:
The exposures are all right on the money.
Nice goin' buddy,

Steve
