Hi Winston, : )

Lovely bird is your Western Tanager and definitely nicely captured too.

I noticed there's an other little lovely bird that you're holding dear to your heart too. : )


Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz

Lovely bird shots all. Great to see some of your shots again Winston, and I guess a new member of the family :)

Yes, superb shots Robbie (seen on Dyxum too, but that's OK. Linking them here is great).

Robbie,
Great set. I love the second one for that "pleated" pattern of the wings.
