    Birds Talk to your local farmers (wildlife advice), image loaded thread.

    Hi, I wanted to write this for a week but life kept me busy. I have wanted to do this myself for a while but never got to (so much for taking my own advice) but I happened on this event twice in 6 years: When farmers cut down the fields of grass to be used as hay for their farms it will reveal...

    Birds The Little and The Tiny Grebe

    I wanted to make this post for some time but I haven't found what this bird is until very recently: Called Little Grebe or Dudchick (Tachybaptus ruficollis), it's a very small aquatic bird that I never seen until this spring. They are quite common in Europe, North Africa, Asia and Russia. But...

    I was asked to start a thread to show the water feature I installed in my yard. We relocated closer to the Texas coast in 2022 and there was an area under some trees to do this. Keep in mind, along the coast there are many birding destinations and many have only small water features that attract...

    Six male Hooded Mergansers and one female were having fun a couple of days ago playing the "mating game." This particular shot shows just three males escorting the gal (the other three were out of camera range) and clearly they were enjoying themselves. So was she, as evidenced by the glint in...

    Advice Wanted Which combination for photographing small things (birds, wildlife) at long distances

    I have two camera bodies: OM-1 and Fuji X-T5. I want to upgrade a long lens to either the Olympus 300mm f/4 or Fujinon XF 150-600 f/5.6-8 lens. I am mostly interested in anyone who has experience with these two lenses and their evaluation of image quality. (I am not that interested in BIF so...

    My first DiY bird feeder

    We got 2 big old trees cut down at the workplace and it got me thinking of a few ideas. This is one of them: to use a large-ish log as a bird feeder in my garden. I picked a reasonably portable log that won't start rolling in the wind. I am thinking of drilling some holes for the bird food on...

    Fuji Trying out a 10 year old Fujifilm HS30EXR superzoom bridge camera

    Here are some words that come to mind, when I think of a superzoom, in roughly this order: fun, zoomy, miraculous, versatile, compromised, frustrating, disappointing. But I still went and touched the hot wire! Feeling equally bored and inquisitive, I recently bought a used HS30EXR to play around...

    For those shooting birds in their back yard or garden, share your environmental features

    I recently moved my bird feeders closer to the house for winter, just to make it easier to keep them filled. I moved it thinking I may be able to shoot through a window over winter. What didn't occur to me was that it ended up about 20' from the service door on my garage. Last weekend I stood in...

    Our ship was turned away from Cuba by the U.S. Government, so we spent a couple of days in The Bahamas. The zoo and gardens was over booked, so we walked the streets. This is how I knew I missed photographing birds. Even the pigeons started to look good.
