So Cal backyard bird

7 posts in this topic

Three pics of same bird.  Is this a Ruby-crowned Kinglet?  Unfortunately impending darkness and a fast-moving bird with plenty of leaves to hide behind made it difficult to get a good picture.  Haven't seen one around the house before...

fourthed...but you know what I mean. These birds are very fun to try and photograph. During heavy fall migration this year in Michigan I was in an open field at my local park with about 30 of them along with a small variety of warblers and vireos and I left with no decent kinglet pictures. It was frustrating, to say the least.

Thanks all.  I am now motivated to get a great pic of one, preferably with a ruby crown showing.  I ordered a Canon 100-400 mm, which should be arriving tomorrow...it better not let me down!

Just hope that lens is quick focusing. I have a Nikkor lens that is 100-400mm that I don't even use anymore for songbirds, too slow when you have only a fraction of time.
