p.1 #1 · If You Build It, They Will Come


This location was a very nice surprise to discover... totally by accident. These were taken at a beautiful natural rock fountain that was "built" at the new Kaiser Permanente Hospital in our area. I discovered it while picking up a prescription a couple of weeks ago and thought... Wow, this could be a magnet for any birds in the area... it is.

All C&C are greatly encouraged and most appreciated.

[Edit] The green "backdrop" in several of these is the beautifully manicured grass and plants surrounding the fountain area.

2. House Sparrow















3. Brewer's Blackbird (Thanks Cincy Bruce)















4. Lesser Goldfinch















5. Female Brewer's Blackbird

Thanks for the good words Ken. The green "backdrop" is the beautifully manicured grass and plants surrounding the fountain area.

You certainly found a great watering hole Kirk. Super shots and if you overdo it and sprain your shooting finger you are right where you need to be

Great job keeping an eye out for the right kinda spot.
All are very nice but the Cowbird is awesome.
The pose, the blacks, the BG and the detail are great.
Very nice.

WOW!!!!!!!!

You weren't kidding when you said these would be good. I can honestly say the first one is the absolute best best hummer and water I have ever seen Where is the bowing emoticon oh great master! Super sharp from tail to tongue, really Kruk this baby is what this game is all about

Oh there's more He said picking jaw up off of the floor and rinsing his tongue off.

2,3,4 are close to off the charts, you and I have discussed shots with the whole bird in focus and you rocked these

I don't want to slight the others but they are only REALLY good.

Wow Kirk, you really outdid yourself on this set. I would be afraid I wouldn't be able to match these with my next set if I were you No pressure

Kirk-
The Peanut Gallery thinks these are swell pictures .
The hummingbird pic is off the charts!
And in the last image- the grackle's "stare down" is downright menacing.
