    Good pics Steve,

    I'd be pleased to have taken them.

    Where are you?
    I don't think we get those nice colourful red thingies here
    What are they?

    Thanks,

    If I had to pick a favorite it would be #3, but all are winners in my book. I don't know how you manage to get the chickadees to sit still long enough for such a clear shot, but great work. The cardinals are both excellent also, but #3 because of the pose and fluffed up feathers.

    I'd love to be able to get shots like this.

    Thanks Wendy, I like the 3rd one also.

    There was about 15 or 20 of them feeding at the neighbors bird feeder. There is a ton of snow here and they don't have anything else to eat. I tucked myself in tight to some pine trees and waited a few min and they all came back to the tree about 30 feet away. Just a matter of waiting for one to isolate itself from the branches. The chickadee must have been curious what i was, because it flew out and landed right in front of me several times. Those little suckers are very quick, and so dang small you have to be close to get a good shot. May have to set up a ground blind and get real close.

    Keep the bird shots coming, Steve. You seem to have a knack for it.
