Thanks Krob78!  On why people would scare them, you got me.  Everyone seems against bullying people but animals/birds, that seems ok. 

Another cool Cardinal shot serendipidy!

I keep trying to catch the larger birds like the Jays & Acorn Woodpeckers on takeoff.  Much harder than waterfowl it seems.

ERHP - love those sparkling blue colors.

Not much from this end but there are a huge number of robins still.

Well timed and sharp photo. The colors are very nice too. :)

Nice background bokeh. The robin looks like he is deep in contemplation. :)

That level of ISO performance is the stuff dreams are made of 8). All the Robins already left a few months ago over here.
Here's a young BCN heron (7D, ISO100, 1/400s, F/8, 700mm) and an Eastern Wood-Pewee (7D, ISO200, 1/400s, F/6.3, 700mm)

Thanks Jack, click, rpt and serendipidy!  They seem ridiculously bright when flying away and flaring before landing, especially with the sun on their back.

Jack, cool Robin.  Everytime I see one now I can't help but think about the realistic Robin(Batman) costume cartoon.

I still can't get over how many fish Harry devours, serendipidy!  Cool shot with the eyes!

Nice Pee-Wee, Moobark!  We don't get the Easterns here but our similar ones don't like to pose for long(not quite as bad as warblers though)

There are not enough Heron pictures on this forum, so here's my contribution....

Green Heron, shot with 60D and 70-200 at 200mm, ISO320, 1/800th at F8.0
