Great images as usual, Kirk. Are you sure #3 & #5 are grackles? These look alot like a Brewer's Blackbird according to Sibley's.

Bruce


Thanks so much for the good words Bruce.
You are correct about the Brewer's Blackbird, thank you. I have since found out that the "Brown-headed Cowbird" is actually a female Brewer's.

Dang buddy you made these superior images by your exposures, BG control and comps and DOF. There is lots of good stuff in these images and yes indeed Hummer #1 is #Uno

You know I am a sucker for a 'Gracklin' good shot and you have pleased me over and over here on these!

#4 Lesser Goldie harmonizes so well with the coloring of the water and rocks below and behind.

Looks like the Sparrow has been gathering nesting material, nice pose and BG buddy..................

Delightful sassy pose on the Cowbird

You got yourself a new outdoor studio to enjoy,
...Show more

Many thanks for the very generous and thoughtful words Karl... always appreciated.

As I said in the intro... as soon as I laid eyes on this fountain I immediately knew it would provide excellent opportunities. It will become a frequent stop on my home from work.

The Hummer is what I was hoping for and am quite pleased with #1. When I first saw the fountain a Hummer was bathing on the flat area and that is what I want most of all... stay tuned.

Thanks to Cincy Bruce I found out the Grackle and Brown-headed Cowbird are actually a male and female Brewer's Blackbird. Both are beautiful.

The Goldfinch came and went very quickly so I was glad to get a few frames, once again I am really pleased with the GF image.

It's a beautiful spot for my new outdoor studio.

Thanks again for the good words buddy.

Beautiful captures! I especially like 3, the male Brewer's Blackbird - awesome shot. BTW, 5 is a female Brewer's Blackbird, not a Brown-headed Cowbird. Cowbirds have a shorter, thicker, more cone-shaped bill. Nice set up.


Thank you for the very kind words, and for properly identifying the female Brewer's... most appreciated.

It is indeed an oasis in our concrete jungle, and I will definitely be back often... stay tuned.

Really hoping you're able to get out shooting soon... I miss your beautiful work.
