For couple of hrs today morning. Got real lucky with the different types of birds that I was able to shoot at my local park.

Wren/Thrush, Osprey, Red-tailed hawk, Magpie, Blue bird, Junco, Great & Snown egret, One unknown bird, Starling, Meadowlark and so on. Will post them as I process. Here is the wren (Marsh Wren ???) or the Thrush (Hermit???)







For these I was in AI servo mode (by mistake) but the shots came out ok.

Nice pose photos bobby. I especially like the 3 toned background, fits in real nice with the bird. We had lots of sun tootoday, butit was suppressed by the massive wall of cold. I hope your hawk and osprey shots worked out well and look forward to seeing them...the others too, but those are the ones I'm most interested in.

What you got there is a sparrow of some sort. Looks like it could be a Song
Sparrow. But when it comes to these little brown jobs, I'm not always correct
on the ID, except that it is a sparrow. Wrens and thrushes have longer and less
chisle shaped bills.

Nice shots, bobby. A sparrow it is, probably a Song Sparrow. The Song Sparrows up in my neck of the woods tend to come with darker stripes along the sides and breast, and with a larger number of them - the bird guides to describe regional differences so I do still think the id is correct...
