Thumbs up Male & Female Cardinal plus more....

Hey everyone..

This is my 1st "birding" post here.. hope you like the pics...

These were taken a few days ago with my Canon EOS 650 film camera with a Sigma 70-300 lens... Sorry the pics arn't that good, I pre-focused on the feeder and used the remote to fire the shutter... problem was, I was focused on the FEEDER, not the bird! .. so, the birds are not as sharp as hoped for.. I fixed this problem though with the film currently in my camera...

1st pic... Male Cardinal...
2nd pic... Female Cardinal...
3rd pic... (I'm new to birding, so I'm not sure what this is?)
4th pic... My setup...
5th pic... Rabbit.. LOL

again, I hope you like the pics.. any comments or suggestion appriciated...

Dave

I think #3 is a female house sparrow. Anyone else? The pics look great to me, I don't think the birds are too fuzzy at all, though I'm no pic expert. Nice feeder. And you can see each individual bird seed! ;-)

Nice shots you have there.. I especially like how you added the sequence shots above the main pic. Definately something different
