Rodney, I think you are the master of the Butcher Bird shots.

You hit the exposure on the head with this black and white bird and the high dynamic range of the shot.

Ditto on what Lou says--good dynamic range with the white and black feathering on the bird! I can almost hear it sing!!!

Thank You Lou, Jelpee, GW, Mtnman and Harriet.

How do you describe a whistle song ?, it can be amazing loud and sometimes when it the rains, when we get some, very soft musical.
