    Beautiful shots of an extremely difficult subject to shoot. the robin shots, the Junco and the Cardinal are all well done. :)

    ETA:
    That 3rd shot of the robin is about as good as one could hope for with birds - a clear, unobstructed view and a good pose with even light.

    thanks Andrew--I was out in my backyard--and that guy was bopping around! I still don't know how to really use my camera well, but I am trying to learn! LOL!

    Very nice Dizzy.

    Our robins are related to thrushes if I recall correctly. Not quite as cute as yours, but always a welcome sight around here :)
