All these were taken within an hour of dawn over the course of a week.

The first, is a Northern Flicker I found browsing the edge of a Marine Pond. Shot was from about 125 feet.

This Goldfinch played hide and seek with me, but was finally coaxed out by an offer of money. This after all is New York

The Eastern Towhee is advertising his presense. They are relatively common in the tree's bordering the marshes of Brooklyn.

I really like this shot. Sort of a dawn confrontation. He is siting right on some sort of bush in the middle of a sea of sea grasses right in the middle of a Marine marsh. I'm hard to see, but this guy figured out who I was...

This is a Hermit Thrush. One brief look and he was gone.

Little Song Sparrow ruined this shot for me by hoping right out of the viewfinder...

I also like the Red Wing black bird shot Dave. Thebirds stare, crop, lighting and compositiongives unwrittencommentary to the scene. He does look very aware of your presence and seems to besizing you and your little dog up for a serious bout of pecking. :-x

And thats not out of the question with thisguy as he's known to take on Hawks, Heron or what ever flys over his territory.

It was a "spooky" scene. It was a wonderful clear dawn, and for this shot the sun was partially covered by one of those clouds, and you get for a moment or two - a "strange light."

My high speed walk when shooting is .1 Mph :-)

So often enough, I am invisible, and they see my assisstant.

In this shot he "pinned me," at the moment the shutter clicked. A look of mutual recognition. I realy like it.
