This is one of the hardest for me to get a shot of. Here collecting hay for a nest. They are still about a blink of the eye.

Hi Gerry, it is so hard with many of the small jumpy birds. Do you have the EXIF for this shot. The reason I ask is that you seem to have a very narrow DOF. Both your foreground and background seem blurred.

You are ahead of me, I do not have any shots of them. Nice capture.

Very fine. I have never seen one not sit on the ground.
