Hi Zig-123,
Thank you very much for your nice compliment. It's a process. I remember having the same thoughts about some of the posters here and on other forums about 4 years ago when I first started shooting birds and wildlife. Just keep shooting and then shoot some more. I must say some of your posts are excellent and I have enjoyed seeing birds from your neck of the woods. I love your shot of the Titmouse giving you a piece of his mind at the feeder. :lol:
All the best,
Steve

Good shots of a nice variety of bitds. Your curlew, however, is a Whimbrel - Long-billed Curlews do not have stripes on the head. I did post one a day or two ago that you can look at for comparison. The Whimbrel also is smaller than the Long-billed, and only a little larger than the Willet in the same picture.
