Some really good photos here Houston. Really good capture of the color on
the Purple Finch. Nice Robin, but what is that metal band at its foot? And
that gull is almost ethereal looking!
Thanks Woodmeister. And that band is a plastic tie strap holding up a feeder. I really didn't want it there but its not often you can get a Robin in a tree so I took what I could get. :-) I can't explain the gull. It was very late in the day but some light was still there. Don't know why the background turned out so dark. Anyhow I liked it pretty much.

Nice shots.

I really like the color on that first.

The gull is really a nice shot. I was surprised to read how you took it.

Thanks Zoomn. I had my camera and scope on my Bogen Manfrotto 3046 tripod with the 3275 geared head. For taking a shot like that when the bird will sit there and pose for you the geared head can't be beat. But I'm wanting to get a ball head for it but just can't decide which one to get. I don't know anything much about tripods and heads but I think I want a ball head that the tension can be adjusted so that I can keep my hands on the camera and not on a panning lever. Can you make any suggestions here.
