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.

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.

Nice set Bill. Congratulations on the lifers. I'm sure you'll get more opportunities for better shots.
