2nd and 3rd wooodpecker shots are my favourite. The uncluttered background and close up (to a jittery bird) win. Job well done

It must be strange to be shooting from a warm place for a change, nicely done shots Mole

You are much too modest. These are terrific pictures - even through the glass. Quite a selection of visitors you have.

MtnMan - So your dogs also enjoy "watching the world go by" through the window!

Lou - Thanks so much. I know what you mean about the thrasher - we hear them often, but about all we ever see is a brief glimpse.

John - Glad you liked these. And I know what you mean about the double-paned glass - helps our wood stove to keep the house warm, but sure does add distortion to any photo images.

Daniel - Thanks for your kind & specific comments!

Hans - It did seem rather odd...

Tsquare - Thanks so much - glad you liked my "feathered friends!"

Good job Mole ! I really love those Cardinals - spectacular birds.

Next time, to increase contrast, one of these may help :

Kevin - Your tool suggestion looks great, but my wife does not approve... Besides, we'd have to burn a lot more wood in the stove to keep the house warm...
