After a dreary and wet start to the day, it finally brightened up and the was some actual blue sky, so I thought a quick drive out to a local picnic area that has bird feeders to see what birdies I might find

No sooner had I got there that the light changed and I also hadn't noticed until I got home that I hadn't changed the camera focus point from a zone to single point...

Yet another that I rarely get to see, like #2 as it shows off their dumpy stance.

Thanks Denis, I think in this instance I've caught 3 different birds. they are quite common at this picnic site, the problem is like many of the little birds in the tit family they tend to fly in and out very quickly.

Very nice set Rye.  Sharp,  decent backgrounds and no twigs in the way.

Thanks John, in the last image this tree branch (a small part of one anyway) was placed on the feeding table. I suspect an enterprising photographer did it so the birds would land on a natural looking perch with an uncluttered background before jumping down for the seeds on the platform below.
