Have about a dozen of these birds that come into the yard almost daily.
KC, if you see this and to answer your question, I usually hit a slump this time of year. The light gets short lived and terrible. There's a large hill just behind our house on the West side, so this time of year it starts to get shadowy and dark around 3PM. We're down to a handful of bird species so things get repetitive and tough to get decent shots with a bridge camera. Then of course there's the holiday hustle and bustle. I'm sure I'll be back more often in January.

I sure hope so Bill ;)
A beautiful close up image of our Blue Jay. The colors are brilliant and nice of it to turn its head for us ;)
