    Here's my little friend Wilson - it's been a while since I was able to photograph him. The aging bird feeder will be replaced one of these days. At least Wilson isn't complaining about it.

    This was the first time I've photographed a turkey vulture perched on a branch. Usually I only see them flying overhead.

    I was finally able to photograph Wilson on the squirrel feeder. It's close to our backdoor so I went out the front and walked around. Even though he knew I was there, he proceeded to eat. While he really likes peanuts, it's the sunflower seeds he loves. It must not have taken him long to figure out how to lift the lid. The food has been eaten everyday.

    If this had been any other squirrel, it would have run off. And in case you are wondering about the long screw, it's to be able to fasten on a corn cob. The screw has a plastic tip protector on the end so he won't get hurt.

    This morning I was about to add some peanuts to the squirrel feeder when I looked out the window. Not sure if this squirrel is Wilson, but it stayed like that while eating. Instead of sitting on the platform and dropping the shells outside the feeder, it is leaving the shells inside.

    Below is the same image before doing any Photoshop editing. There is a CP filter on my lens, but I didn't even consider a reflection from the next window (actually the window shade) would be visible. When I took the photo, I placed part of the hood against the door's glass. The lens was at an angle to the glass though. Somehow it picked up a reflection of the slatted window shade in the next window. I didn't remove every sign of the reflections. It took enough time to do just what was done. Next time I will definitely keep watch and see if rotating my CP filter makes a difference.

    I don't know how many of you have seen the photos circulating on Facebook of the squirrel sitting at a picnic table, but someone made this for Wilson. I just set it up this afternoon and already it is in use.

    I haven't kept up with posting my images here. During this past month I've taken photos that I haven't yet posted, but I will simply add a couple from today - Male Red-Winged Blackbird.

    These first two images were taken back on April 14th.

    This one was taken yesterday. I'm surprised the hearts have held up well despite temps dropping down into the 30's during a couple nights.

    The first squirrel photo is cross-posted in the squirrel thread (and is cropped a little from the original file). I interrupted it eating out of the squirrel feeder. I swear it's giving me the finger in the first pic.

    At least my TC seems to be working fine for now. For a while there, my images were so soft that I had to use PCC's Shake Reduction to sharpen them. These were both without Shake Reduction. However, I maxed out my ISO at 5000 (which is where the ISO is capped). Still...Nik Collection's Dfine works well although I'm sure something from Topaz would have yielded better results. I also wound up adding an adjustment brush in Camera RAW to further reduce noise in the sky.

    While I am not a fan of geese, these goslings were really cute.

    Today I shot several photos of geese along with goslings. Thanks to @Marcel for providing the inspiration. Lately geese are the only larger sized birds I've been able to find. But since I am not a geese fan, I've passed up several opportunities to photograph them. This is just one from this afternoon.
