Fabulous shots Ed. I'm always amazed at the images you post here. All are excellent, but #2 is my favorite.

Ed, I agree with Mtnman on #2. You do a great job of getting focus in situations that could easily confuse not only the auto focus of the camera but the photographer as well with all the clutter of twigs around the bird. Your exposures are dead on and your skills are to be admired.

Very very nice Ed, I like the shots of the little ones. As stated above your shots are spot on.

The young'un looks like it's having a bad-hair day! Love the photos, the second one is really wonderful.
