High Note Time/Red-Winged Blackbird

I decided to spend the afternoon at a little mountain lake in Colorado called Echo Canyon. Last year I went up there one time and noticed a lot of blackbirds and I need some new blackbirds for my web site.

Waiting for the music to start



Hitting the high note



Singing his song



Waiting for the call for a encore

roger,
good work. the problem with these shots is it's impossible, without hdr, to capture. wish you had one at a slower EV that gets the blk feathers but blows the hi-lites. keep on truckin.

i sure miss the red/tri wings here. for some reason about 15 years ago they disappeared.

Excellent! I tried to get some shots of Red Wings this morning, but I only had a 200mm lens with me (my 400mm was back in the car (of course). Great exposure control...

Hi Rick, I don't know what they are like where you are but around here you need a long lens. Thanks for looking and commenting.
