Nice shots. You are having more success getting birds to pose for you than I am.

Thanks for looking at the photos and the nice comments.

The lens is a Quantaray, I believe it's made by Sigma for Ritz/Wolf camera. I got it with my DL as a package for an extra $100.

Jerkules, Fortunately, we have a wooded backyard so there are a fair number of birds that hang out. Not a lot of varity in species, but it provides me a place to sit and wait for the opportunity to get agoodshot at a bird. Nothing like sitting and sipping some coffee while waiting forone to decide to cooperate.

That is a redheaded woodpecker. Love to say I planned that shot, but I've got to admit when I was starting to depress the shutter, he was sitting on the branch.

Nice catch!

P.S.: you've got a slight bit of purple fringing in the first one. you're able to get rid of that pretty easily with any photo-editing tool (even red-eye reduction, as long as it has a manual option).
Just take a "desaturate" brush to make that thin purple line grey, and noone will notice it anymore.
