There they are! I was wondering if we would see these. Really these are likely some of your best work Mike, especially the in-flight shots!

Flights shots on waterfowl are one thing...but songbirds are a whole new ball game. Nice BIF shots on a small and agile target. Thinking about it kind of reminds me of the patriot missiles that got all of the attention in the first gulf war. You've got a moving target that you need to lock on to with a high degree of accuracy. Not an easy task...well done!

Great stuff, Mike. I expect by now the old avian portfolio is bulging with excellent work from a very large and still growing number of species.

Need some hard-to-find breeding male warbler species? winkwink

E-mail, buzzy, e-mail is a wonderful thing. Nothing specifically planned, but the MN Arrowhead is has the largest number of species of nesting wood warblers in North America, and the techniques for excellent photos of them are well established. grin

All a fellow needs is a bit of local knowledge with locations. When are you going to get a long lens, anyway? I've heard through the grapevine that Nikon makes a 500mm. gringrin

I'm not asking you to hire me. There simply are some things I think you should know.

Yes sir, I am semi familiar with the bird whispering. grin

I'd like a 500mm lens, but that 300mm w/1.4 TC has done well, if I had a 500mm it would be like cheating. grinwink besides, I just stimulated the economy enough by purchasing a German vehicle a few weeks ago. whistle

I spoke with our friend S.T. about doing a Warbler run as well, he mentioned some place in northern Wisconsin. I think we should all get together and spend a weekend chasing elusive hard to find Warblers and create some nice images. We can do the e-mail thing and get it dialed in!!

    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
