Now I know these are not great photos as it has been light rain and hazy all day but tried anyway. All of these were taken at ISO 400, and a few with shutter speed of 1000. Some PP, cropping and smoothness. Still they are some what soft. You can see the rain drops on the doves back.

#5 Suggestions to improve on these light rainy day photos would be appreciated.

Jerry, the last three shots look just fine to me. They could maybe use a little sharpening and up the saturation just a bit but overall you did well. The first two can be helped some by adjusting levels some to get rid of the hazy look but not much can be done for the softness. I would lower the ISO and shoot at a slower shutter speed. Just fast enough to stop any slight movement of the camera or subject. I can't say for sure if that will help but give it a try.
Glad to see you had one Red Winged Blackbird among all those others. The are only here during the spring and summer.

You do have a lot of birds, Jerry. How many feeders do you have out? Too bad your feeders don't fill up with Cardinals like that in the summer.

Thanks Ted and Don.

Ted, really appreciate you viewing commenting and especially your suggestions. Attaching my attempts.

Don, appreciate your viewing and commenting also. I counted 20 bird feeders and 3 squirrel feeders. I average 35 to 50#'s of birdseed a week during the winter months and the migration. In a few months, will put the hummers feeders out.:G I really like to watch the birds and try to see as many species as I can.
Not a lot of improvement on first two, Just can't make up for good lighting.
