    when you do set up some nice perches about 2-3' away take your pics on there they will usually land on them before going to the feeder

    Thanks for that advice. I noticed they tend to go in the tree first. I am about to start looking for some better looking perches and such. The feeders I have don't exactly make for pretty images.

    Overcoming fears of increasing ISO.

    Crooked bird bath kinda looks like a see-saw.

    When yo do put some branches out for perches, consider where the light will be the best, and where you can best place yourself to shoot. I get more songbird pictures in 15 minutes than a four hour hike most other places. Limited species, but still a lot of fun.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I need to put a feeder or 2 elsewhere in the yard as well, maybe even in the front yard. The shooting conditions like it is now aren't even close to ideal.
    I love the backyard birds. Thrilled to find 2 new ones (Warbler and Downy Woodpecker) are starting to frequent the feeders. The Red-Bellied Woodpecker is starting to become a regular as well.

    She had some really good light just in the eye area, but by the time I got the camera, it went away. Go figure.

    Difficult to tell, but I think this is an American Crow. I try to pay attention to the noises they make when flying off.
