p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Happy Days ! Rufous Loving The Sun


Happy days are here again, the sun is out, the rain has stopped and the birds are loving it.

The rufous are still here and the males are so colorful especially when the sun strikes the gorgeous iridescence
of the gorget .

While looking for the hummers, I was surprised by a juvenile or female pine warbler . Please let me know if my id is not correct.

I know the shadows from the sun are not helping some of the shots, but it was so nice to be in the sun

As always your suggestions are so appreciated.

Glad you're finally seein' some sun AND blue skies, Birdie Fine series w/some great details.
#4 FTW, if we're keepin' score.

Very nice set, Birdie with some bright blue
You got some very sharp detail in these.
Your last one looks like an American Goldfinch to me. Warblers have a thinner and more pointed beak.

Nice set Roberta,

my vote goes for # 4

& # 5 is an American Goldfinch - most probably a female

Lovely set Roberta.
I especially like the first one, because it captured the little bird at a special moment, relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the sun for a moment.
I know that feeling, because I love these moments myself sooooooo much

Thanks,

Koen.

It's nice to see the sun after days of grey skies Birdie. #4 is also for me. Great shooting.

Wow, super nice detail in these Birdie... he looks a little sleepy in a couple of these.
Wonderful look at the Goldfinch too.
So glad you're getting some sun time.

Love the detail in all of these shots, but I must agree with the majority that #4 is the best of the lot. Great framing, sharp detail and a perfectly OOF background to minimize distractions. Beautiful.

I like all of these equally, Birdie.
At first I thought you had caught a blink. Then another one and I decided the birds were dozing.
As quickly as hummers do everything else, I assume they take "power naps." Sleep for 10 seconds and wake up refreshed .

Great to see you had some sun Birdie I too like the last two the best. I'll tell you why I don't like the first three I'm not a big fan of closed eyes, sometimes yes I do like them, but most of the time not. 2 looks soft to me. Keep in mind, focus on the eye

Nice set Birdie. I like #4 best. In #1, the bird does have very sleepy look.
