Hi Dawg,

I think that #1&2 are chickadees, but that doesn't matter much. . . Your daily practice is paying off. Each day, the shots seem to be getting better.

Nice pictures - but I think the first two are of chickadees also. The third one is definitely a Nuthatch, but the first two match the picture in my field guide of a black-capped chickadee.

And you and Scott both are correct...But what do you think of the photos?

They must be good if we are remarking on the bird species (you can see the differences clearly). Yes - they are quite good.

P.S. Are your chickadees as quick as ours are out here (a different variety)? They are hard to take pictures of because they rarely sit still long enough - I can't usually get them with a manual focus lens.

Yes they are that quick...The Nuthatches, Titmouses and the Chicadees are all that way. You have to give them a target and anticipate them going there...Also if there are branches near the feeder they will land on them after getting a seed and peck them open. This is how I get them. Fast auto focus helps but when there is insufficient light I have to anticipate where they will land and prefocus!
