Like that colorful bird in the 6th shot. Looks like some kind of wren.

Great shots, expecially of the silver eyes and the other shot with the creative use of the Moon...

nice shots, Alady! glad you're finding the 30D satisfactory... i sure love mine! i've been usingit mostly at ISO 400, because the light has been pretty poor lately, and i've been using higher shutter speeds (1/640 and faster) most of the time to be able to capture birds in motion. once brighter weather becomes the norm, and i start shooting more static subjects, i plan to set the ISO back to 100 and see how it does there. so far, the noise i've found has been relatively minimal, and only in shots where the exposure was marginal anyway. i suspect bumping up the ISO would help reduce underexposure, and therefor noise, so that ISO500 or even ISO640 shots might wellbe "cleaner" than the same pic at ISO400, if the 400 version resulted in a marginal exposure...
