Greetings,

Yellow-headed Blackbirds are uncommon in SW LA however today was exceptional..

Shooting dark subjects is my nemesis. Suggestions, C/C is much appreciated.





Even though I have seen these birds before it still doesn't look just right.




Seeing is believing.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your kind words. I totally agree with you and my brain still short circuits when seeing blackbirds with yellow heads.

Best,
Tom

Thank you so much Ken. It has been a year since seeing any YHBB and they were out in numbers.

Best,
Tom

Hi Birdie,

Your kind comments are greatly appreciated. I'm not certain what happened in the last picture but something got his attention.

Best,
Tom

Thanks so much Socrate. I was fortunate that the YHBB were out in such large numbers and a delight to shoot.

Tom

Nice work on these Tom The last with the bird standing on his toes looking out above the rest is a wonderful shot These do look a bit cool, in RAW if you slide the temperature slider just a touch to the right you might be able to warm them up nicely

So glad you like them Michael. Black is equally tough for me as well. I am attempting to shoot in Manual mode. Some of the pics came out and some not so good. It will just take practice for me. Wishing some YHBB to show up for you.

Best,
Tom
