Hi,

now that the snow is slowly disappearing, the small birds in the garden are the first to announce the spring to come.

I have shot some pics of them with my Reflex-Nikkor 500/f8 on the G1 this morning.
Here's a first one :

Little Wren

I took this one on monday. Just outside our kitchen window these little wrens flit around in the bush. The males are blue and the females a very drab brown. They are fairly small- their body just being a bit bigger than a ping-pong ball. Their legs the size of match sticks. Full zoom on the 45-200mm

These are with a Hexanon 200mm - very little cropping. Camera was about 8 feet from the feeder on a tripod with wireless remote.

A couple of shots taken with my G1 and 45-200, full zoom and EZ on.
Unfortunately taken through glass (dirty windows).

First of all, great photos...second of all how cool it must be to have Patches come to you! I've only had that happen once, out in a nature conservancy when a friend of mine "called" some chickadees in... This fellow is so cute and so different from our American Robins.

Thanks, yes its really cool to have a wild bird that has so much trust in you, but Patches is not the first robin my wife and i have hand fed, we first started to try this hand feeding on another robin about three years ago and ended up with a bird so tame he would sit on my knee and sing, he would also come right in the house and sit on my TV, and poo on it too, :biggrin:

But one word of warning, if you try this yourself be prepaid to commit some valuable time to it.

Lovely shots, Mark.
I'm glad to see that Patches made it through this long and cold winter !

C U,

Hi Raf, Louise made sure Patches was well fed all through the winter, and now he has a mate we are feeding two.
