Red polls are exciting. They are chatty and cheerful birds who give you the stare

There were at least three mockingbirds, mocking each other and me, and the raven

COMMON REDPOLL!Way to go boss.I'm impressed and jealous all at the same time.Nice isolated perch capture, but the exposure was not setto favour a bird with a bright sky background. You mustover-expose to compensate. Shift to the right. Probablyat least a full stop, or even more.I've PS'ed but the exposure error cannot be fully mitigated.

Some of the masters do agree to meet their earthly student, unlikely some other master :-\

By the way that upside down Canada Goose in flight that you noticed is called Whiffling - this is how they control their speed and altitude before landing.

Thank you. Certainly interesting to be hold for such a big bird.
