i wonder, not being that familiar with birding, how many times in my times when i have been out in the woods growing up, or even now in the city, do i pass some very nice little bird like this, and think its a sparrow. or some of the others you posted, and i just thought it was some chickadee thing. i doubt i ever pay enough attention or know what to even look for.

That's one of the things I love about wildlife and nature photography, the more I do it the more I learn and see. I have always loved watching birds, ever since I was a small boy. I didn't really start learning to ID the different types until I started pointing a camera at them.

Cheers All,
Steve

Same here Steve, its a shame we have to wast so much of our younger years before we can enjoy the finer things in life.

These shots are great, nice lighting!

I used to run my dog at plumb beach long before I got interested in bird photography. I was however taking shots of the dog. I remember the Gulls, their calls, the feeling of being one with nature. Years later I took a look at some of those shots - There actually were all sorts of unusual birds in the pictures.

I never noticed...

I think we all tend to become a little more observant as we get older. I think we have had time to learn to appreciate the things around us more. At least, I hope we have.

Thanks to all the comments, Steve
