Thanks Jon, I think you're right on Lincoln's.  I don't have more views unfortunately.

Need a little help with this sparrow in Alberta.  Seems it might be immature.

Thanks guys for the kind comments.  Yes, Don is the nuthatch king! ;)  They are aggressive little guys - no fear.

Thanks 9yards.  When it looks like I can get close I try to go with the 300 2.8 and when it happens it's exhilarating.  Usually though I'm afraid to not have the 2X on the lens for fear of losing the more distant shot.  Photography sure is a realm of compromises!

2-3 weeks ago this was an easy capture, but not now.  When they're not feeding young I never see them.

You got that right.  I have more nuthatches than chickadees and that's a lot.  if I sat still they'd sit on my head.  ;)

Finally getting a chance to look back at some woodpecker shots.  Thought the dual eyelid was pretty cool.  Unfortunately when eyelids are closing the head is moving and critical focus is tough (with a 6D anyway).

Jim, I'm glad I'm not you!  If it provides half the satisfaction of my 300 2.8 II I wouldn't part with it.  There is always some way to scrimp and get by!!

Thanks Graham, 

Yes I was in awe up there and so tired I couldn't really put much energy or thought into the shots, unfortunately.  My daughter,as a child, had never camped in the mountains and she simply exhausted poor old ma and pa (mid 60's) on this trip as a young energetic adult!  ;)

The shots are in case anyone is debating going where we've just been. GO

Yet another direction.  If you ever visit the Ice Fields this hike is a must.  But dress warmly! ;)
