The Yardbirds - what a great band. I was just..oh, wait these are actually birds! And wonderful shots, too. I love that Hummer that is just starting to show its colors. And the dove, too. Great shots!

Doves are very minimalist builders aren't they? Love the little cardinal. Hope he grows into those feet. :)

You must have the patience of a saint in order to get these many wonderful bird pictures. I salute you! (And I obviously need to work on MY photography patience...lol)

These birds are all so beautiful. I especially love the baby bird pics. Thanks for sharing!
