I haven't been on this forum for a long time!!! Wow!!! I'm impressed at all the really great shots here!!!For the past few months i have been watching 2 oriole nests which appeared to be nonproductive, 2 phoebe nests, only 1 photographable, a robin's nest and a flicker nest which I probably watched daily for at least a month. Unfortunately I missed by one day that the flicker boys poped out and flew the nest. I figured i'd share a few with you all.

6. Well you know the odl saying, "what goes up, must come down". In this case it's "what goes in, must come out". THE END!!

Welcome back - and stay awhile. These are great. Do the robins ride around with the tractor, or is it out of service for the duration? :?

penolta, that's funny but, actually was true!!! A carpenter for the wildlifereserve headquarters told me about the nest. He told me i had to hurry as they needed to move the tractor. So, i went down for my only brief photo shoot. Well, they didn't move the tractor and I think they were under instruction not to move it til the birds moved. Well, it was about a week later after these pictures that the birds fledged and flew and the nest was abandoned. I think the tractor is still there!!! there was a phoebe nest in that same area as there were a pair always flying around and keeping an eye on whomever was around. I never found the nest. I think ot was in a nonaccessible area of the reserve. Most of the shots I took of the robins and the phoebe were were with flash. the last robin shot was under harsh daylight. thanx for the comments.
