With all the fantastic shots on this forum, I'm not sure if I should be posting these.:G Taken in the last couple of weeks. I would like an ID on the 2 sparrows. They almost all look alike to me.

3. Bluejay. This bird would follow me up and down the dirt road I was on. Every time I'd try to get a shot of it, it would pop back into the trees out of sight. Except, I did get him in this shot.

4. A male green winged teal. The only shots of him were as he was sailing away from me. Very timid bird!!

5. Downy woodpecker. It let me get close but, never a really nice pose. Always had leaves and branches in front of him.

Good shooting . That is one well feed Turkey Vulture. must be alot of flattened critters in the area.
My brother and I recently drove from Norfolk, Va. to near Memphis Tn. and all you see along the interstate in multitude are vultures. Plump healthy looking ones at that .
Your Jay shot is also very nice. They are hard guys to keep up with in my area also as they hide in the thickest tree or brush available.

Great shots Dennis! They're definitely worth of viewing in this forum. I think the wildlife forum is what makes us strive for achieving better photos. I know I strive to do it right if I can manage it, and largely that is because the fellow members consistently post such great shots and inspire me to do so. Great learning forum if you ask me...cheers........Don

Wonderful serires, Dennis. I believe the second sparrow is a song sparrow.
