Thanks for starting the new thread with such colors! Margaret.
You certainly did try Nanny, lol, you must be getting better bad shot then me, cause Resin can still ID them.
Haaaa bad bird, he could have at lease, turn it's head around, so we could have a look at him. Kim.

Whoops, my excuse is, It's started getting cold up here, I shivered. lol

LOL, Burn, the bird didn't turn around because of this fella. Not that it minded the photo op. lol. Heeeheee, Nan, his wingspan is big alright! BTW, burn are those some cormorants? Also how cold is it getting to be? It's in the pleasant 60'ish here during the nights.

Awww, migration time right? Canadian Geese pair arrival. Only bad thing about this is .... the photographer didn't catch the pix in a presentable manner. lol

Ya know I have not see or heard any geese. Seems like I see them in the spring but never catch them on the way back in the fall. Weird!

Not that unusual - birds often use different routes northbound and southbound, so as to make best use of different feeding areas and weather conditions. Maybe an area near you has very good food supplies in spring, but not in autumn.

Thanks Resin...it has baffled ever since we moved....though we have lots of farm fields surrounding us. But lots have not yet harvested their corn and beans....so that may be the reason. I never thought about food supply.

Sandusky, OH

I thought this one was appallingly backlit and I,m appalled at the photo's you have all shared!

Imagine that! So what's the saying? ... "One man's trash, another wowan's keeper". (well I've to change the saying a bit), 'cause I LOVE that shot! LOL, Burd, a Crow after the Hawk?

PERTH, Australia

Still a great action shot, Burd.

Sandusky, OH

Yes on the Crow Lily...the Red-tailed Hawk was carrying what looked like a rock above a parking lot...or was it a Turtle...not sure but the Crow made a couple dives at it and I was shooting too close to the sunlight.

See the white smudge? It's a cabbage white butterfly that flew in front of the camera when I was taking a shot of Dad Osprey landing on the nest.

Good bad ones, y'all! LOL

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Okay, help me figure out what am I doing here? Over exposure? Or is that under? LOL

Okay, what happened here? ROFL, I'm just out of lucks.

First is over-exposed, difficult to do anything with it. Second one there is very rescuable - brighten a bit, reduce blue tones slightly, bump up saturation a little, and straighten it.

... and then remove it from this thread as it's now too good to be here.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Awwww, okay, okay let's move it to our daily thread. lol. Thanks Resin for your help. Thanks Margaret for the suggestion.

(Zone 5a)

Is it a Chipping, Fox, Song, or What? At least I am pretty sure it's a sparrow. The grass and corn looks nice. :P

I'm thinking probably Lincoln's, but not 100% sure on that pic

Ok, it's my turn to share some .... a Northern Flicker which I was so happy to see and caught a glimpse of.

See my lifer? The Double-crested Cormorant. I am not sure I even want to explain, it's kind of embarrassing.

I was having a hard time because our new camera has a pretty good zoom and the bird was bouncing all over the place. Besides that, I was still figuring out all the buttons. Well, one of the birders loaned me their tripod so I could stable the camera. I didn't want to look too foolish. I have this cool camera, so should know how to adjust a tripod, right? :p Well, I couldn't get it to move to where I wanted it to, so I snapped the picture, poor and all.

But I think the trees are very pretty.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Though, I must say. The falling leaves are a good signs of Fall. Don't you think? LOL

Those black dots in the sky 'respresent' the Canadian Geese, honest. :)
