Been burning hours over the computer these last few days, but took a few minutes to catch a few of the lingering winter birds:

Love the species! Hey ken, are you running noise removal heavy on those Evening GB shots?

No, Buzz. I haven't run any noise removal on them. What do you see?

Edit. On second thought, I do have high ISO noise reduction on in-camera. Nothing done PP, however.

These are the first ones I've seen since early in the winter. Just happened to have the camera in hand when he showed up. Also saw my first purple finch yesterday. Things are startin' to move.

    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
    • Ever been to Stevens Point or Wisconsin Rapids? 
    •   Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....
    •   Probably no worse then the paper sludge biwaste that was coming out of that plant a few years ago!
    • Well it looks like we got out of expansion is pretty darn good shape. Haula + Tuch and we got a 3rd coming back to us, not bad at all. Tuch is no throw away prospect and could become a heck of a player some day but I feel like we still were able to keep our better prospects and center prospects which is big for us. Sounds like we still might move a D man to clear some cap space so maybe more fireworks to come. 
    • Thanks guys, appreciate the info!
    • Only so many heartbeats, lol.  Probably some study on hummingbirds or something and now the same rules apply to us and our consistent environment filled with healthy choices that are necessities for survival, just like a hummingbirds....  This was probably published by a group of medical providers that want to make you think it doesnt matter if you're lazy, fat, and dependent on "conditioned answers" to life's health and wellness questions and you will seek their "advice" when becoming ill.    
    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?
