Thanks mate. That is the way I was leaning but was not sure.
They have become very common here thanks to garden feeders. My sunflower seed feeder is attracting lots of finches. In the past few days lots of Goldfinches, Blue and Great Tits, a pair of Bullfinches, many Greenfinches and the odd Chaffinch, Blackcap and Robin. I've rigged up a fat feeder for the Longtailed Tits which has a double cage to keep out squirrels and larger birds. 6 or 7 of them fly in at once (Top, R5+400mm). The Blue and Great Tits perch for just a fraction of a second but the finches and the Longtailed hang around for ages. Bottom are a Great Tit and female Blackcap (R5+100-500mm).

The morning we saw the grouse, it was -24 degrees F and we stood in the road for 1.5 hours waiting for it to do something, while it was in the tree. We were finally rewarded when it went down to the ground, but it was damn cold!!!

Very nice shots Jmeyer!

I am curious on what type of equipment you used for these ultrasharp pics ! As well if they were taken handheld (exposuretime?!) or using some kind of support? As well type of postprocessing (Lightroom, Photoshop, .....)?

Thank you. I use 7D mkll, EF 600 f4 ll, 1.4xlll, with carbon fiber tripod and gimbal style head. I use an older version of lightroom, I think 5.7 or something and then I run them through Topaz DeNoise.

And my contribution from today: Red-whiskered Bulbul ruffled by the wind (windy again here but it's pretty much normal...). And my loved White-rumped Shama:
1. Look what I got!
2. The last piece is the best (by far!!!).
3. Since I'm done with the meal (and you didn't still it from me!) I can pose for you (and I'm patient at least for 4-7 seconds!!!)
:)

This is not a good photo, apart from the fortunate composition, taken through double-glazing and was over in an instant. But, it is one for the record: a female Bullfinch, European Goldfinch and a Greenfinch all together in my garden!

Not the best of your photos (you posted here way better pics) but you have 3 (three!) species with just one shot! Time to time I succeed the same... with insects:LOL:!
