Well I for one really like the light and feel of #1 Geoff, that is a splendid image

Winter's feelings come through again on #2, nice exposure and nice coloring here.
#3 one of the trickiest for me, seems you gotta have just the right light for the blacks and whites, I think I'm gonna flash them once I get that 150-600
#4 just a little gritty at 4000 ISO but you got the shot
Last one is fun looking but appears too light to me and bit on the bluish side of WB perhaps?

I am focal length challenged and waiting
Take care and nice set!

Thanks Karl. Here is a re-work of the last. WB warmed up a bit and exposure dropped a bit. I think it is better now??

Nice set of some beautiful birds Geoff... the Northern Flicker is excellent and the re-work of the Red Crossbills is much better.

Very nice set. I saw quite a few today on my walk and they were everywhere. Must be the above freezing temps.
