Default a flurry of winged activity

getting colder and colder at night, correspondingly when it warms up in the days there is a good deal of activity in the forest, all shot with the 70-300mm handheld.

Grabbing a few bites

I like the shots of Bird #3 the most. The berries (or whatever they are) make for an interesting surrounding. Of course the Cardinal is also in the same tree, but he's already red.

Edit--oh, crab apples, duh. You already said that.

James - yes I do like it to, the Robins are easy game though as they tend to sit there and try to claim the tree for a little while which gives me more shots. The Robins actually will get into little battles with other Robins over the tree. If the weather is alright this weekend I am hoping to get a chance to capture this action as it is interesting. As far as challenges though the little ones like the junco in the last shot are harder as they move in and out more quickly.

Suwanavi - thanks for checking them out, living on the edge of the woods I am lucky to have a variety of small woodland birds to shoot, this time of year when the leaves have fallen and the food is more scarce is a good time to catch them, when the summer is full and the leaves are out you barely glimpse them moving about, let along get a shot.

I really liked this shot but was bothered by the one defect so I did some clone/swapping to fix it up, ah much better now!
