Here is a bird I got some shots of on a fencepost. I think it is some type of warbler but could not match it in my bird id book.





I was going to ask for an id on this one but I see from Normcars shots that this is a Kingfisher. These are from about 70 yards away on turbo zoom handheld, what a crazy looking hairdo.



Another shot of the Kingfisher, obviously not the quality of Normcars shots but hey from 70 yards I am glad to just be able to tell there is a bird in the picture.

Great shots, zoomn! Your time outdoors is paying off big time!!!

The top two pictures are not a warbler, but instead great shots of horned larks. The next two pictures are of a female kingfisher (identified by the second and lower brown stripe).

Good call geoffs, Now I see it in the book. There were quite a few of them on the fence posts and they let me get pretty close. There were lots of meadowlarks as well but they never let me get close enough.

Thanks for taking a look and commenting.
