Got outside for a bit today, although this shooting with one hand is a real pain, but then not as much as lifting the arm in the sling too high.

Do be careful! The one thing you don't need is to mess it all up. And a little annoyance of shooting one-handed is minor to the OUCH of doing too much with the arm. Sure wish I had your ability to capture birds, though. These are (as usual) wonderful.

Hi Tom,

These would be great if you could use both arms. . . and a tripod -- exceptionaly considering your situation!

What is the second bird? Any idea -- I got a couple of shots of one that looked just like it, and can't find anything that seems close. . .

Scott, it is an Artcic Redpoll female, they come south to northern Wisconsin for winter and then back to the Arctic for the summer nesting season.

Hi Tom,

Thanks! Now I'm PO'd because I didn't get a better shot -- They probably don't get this far south too often, and I'll probably never see one again. Here's one of the few, heavily cropped and processed. I was pretty much okay with the shot I did get until I saw yours.

Keep up the great work, maybe you'll discover a new way of shooting.

All the best with your injury
