Default Fledgling Red-winged Blackbird

This guy was more curious than scared. I got quite a few shots and waited patiently (sort of) for him to move to the feeder so I could get some full-body shots. He never did. He just took off for parts unknown.

Hi Gary,


Very good series of images. Good feather detail, clarity and sharpness.

Ditto for me. You're having fun with that new lens combo.


Oh, got something in your eye there.

Thanks, guys. This combination is outstanding. I really DO enjoy using it.

@ Ken - uh... yeah. I know. Just a minor irritant.

Yes, excellent series of shots. You really know your birds; I would never have guessed that one was a Red-wing Blackbird.
