  1. Tiny Ruby-crowned Kinglet. You can see the smallest ruby crown on this last photo.
  2. 2 new birds for me today. Pine Siskin (through the kitchen window). Fox Sparrow
  3. How do you get spaces between the pictures?
  4. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers (2 are on the tree)
  5. This little Downy Woodpecker was hanging out in the fencepost. You can see it spitting out wood chips to make the hole larger.
  6. Thanks for your help. I shoot in shutter priority. Is that the best way to shoot birds? My settings were f6.3, ISO 400, 1/1250 sec., 240mm. Because of a dislocated shoulder injury with complications I had to use my old camera so I don't know offhand what the focus was set at. I was happy that I could even use that (Nikon D3400 w/Tamron 18-400mm lens). I'm out several times every day taking pictures of birds in our yard and didn't want to give that up. I had to for a couple weeks then used my cell phone, then a P&S camera, then the D3400. I'm now back to using my Nikon D500 with Sigma 150-6
  7. Thanks! Do you have any tips on how to keep focus on a bird flying overhead? My focus kept going in and out. Even though it passed overhead twice I felt very lucky to get 2 photos.
