We may have been taking them for weeks, but mine don't look like that!!! Whoever thought a grackle could be that beautiful. And I love the female purple--she is so well framed.

Yep, they're starting to get a bit boring. whistle

Not really. Nice series, Ken. You sure can't complain about the sharpness on these, especially the Junco. I love the environment that you captured him and the Fox Sparrow in. That's certainly one advantage you northern folks have. Us southerners have to look hard to find a pine tree. grin

Geez, Ken, I know darn well you shot that environmental of the open water/ice on the lake from your own deck. Lazy Finns! gringringrin

Oh, BTW, when you gonna let that tame ruffed grouse out of its cage so it can drum some more? At least let it out when I'm there! Yikes, I'm dead now. Last favor I ever get from KPS. shockedshocked

Whoa! How many zingers did you get in one post! First of all, the poor ruffie has been workin' for me so hard the last couple of days he needed his rest - it's in his contract!

Secondly, not from my deck - I at least made it down to the other end of the lake! grin

Yeah, well, zingers have a way of circling around like boomerangs and hitting the launcher in the back of the head. No doubt the time will come when I feel blood dribbling down my neck. smilesmile

I have to really admire that image of the grackle too - that doesn't mean I have to like the real thing tho, does it? confused Really, they're all very pretty birds & images!

these are terrific!!!

I saw in the posts someone mentioning ruffed grouse while they were drumming, last spring I was lucky enough to find a male doing his thing, over and over and over,, lol it was funny to watch him, but then I didn't have the gear I have now, I will post the pics I got with my canon rebel xt for you to see,, it was dark, and wasn't able to get really what I wanted, I hope to come across some this spring

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
