Default A few different birds showing up in the backyard

I'm glad to see the cooler weather bring in some new participants.

I have a couple of lifers here. Not good shots of them though unfortunately. I'll be staking out the tree they were spotted in the attempt better shots.

House finches
Downy woodpecker female
Brown-headed cowbird

Lifers, I knew the nuthatch was around but this is the first shot I've been able to get of it. It stayed in the shade though. Second is a ruby-crowned kinglet. This little guy requires much patience.

Outstanding group of images Bill, those little birds will have you pulling your hair out the way they jump around. I have a few Ruby-crowned Kinglets around here, only way I can keep them in my view finder is to shoot free hand.

Thanks for the comments everyone, I appreciate them. I sat yesterday and the weather had warmed back up. They were both no shows.
