Wow! Talk about an attitude. That's great, Steven!

Those are great images!

Most of the time, me feeder is visited by chickadees, goldfinches and such. When a Blue Jay shows up, It's like whoa!!! I'm looking at a behemoth!

Great job in my opinion.

No kidding. I'm usually @ 150mm with the small birds. With these, you have to scale back the operation quite a bit.

I'm glad I researched things a bit before putting up my feeder. I've put it close enough to be at the best distance with the 70-300 and so far, it's enabling me to produce decent pics from my setup.

The only downside is that the Downy woodpeckers keep seeing the reflection of the forest in the "windexed" window and keep bumping into it. I keep seeing feathers, suet and muck in it.
