Hi All,

Lots of activity at the 3' stretch of stream I call Bird Beach.

Two Cedar Waxwings came to play. I'm constantly frustrated trying to get better feather detail -- they always look so smooth -- then I finally realized why someone named them "waxwings". . . Hmmmmm :shock::-)


This is about as dixheveled as I've ever seen one.


A hard to expose male Goldfinch waited his turn. . .


And a VERY tough to catch Baltimore Oriole made an appearance, but was a bit too far off to one side. . .


The Oriole's feathers seem to be one of the least waterproof of the species. That's probably why he seems to be so adverse to being photographed -- makes him look like he's having a very bad feather day. . .:-)

That is some pretty tough flare (or was it something else?) you had to contend with that time Scott.

Hi Tim,

Those are intervening branches with leaves that I tried to shoot through. They were mostly 1/2 to 2/3 of the distance between me and the bird. The birds, except the Goldfinch, were doing their best to bathe in obscurred locations that day. Most of the time, I don't post shots that are really obscurred, but I was pleased enough to get something of these guys that I made an exception.

Thanks for looking

Scott
