I posted this originally in the Single in September (http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f3/single-september-11639.html) thread but I think it got missed. I'm quite happy with this shot and wanted to share it with the others on the board who maybe un-interested in the Single in September (http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f3/single-september-11639.html) thread.

I love this picture. All your bird pictures are so tack sharp.

Just wondering .... what number is he .... and what position does he play.
Note: I'm from Toronto area (Toronto Blue Jays)

Nice one, and it's quiet!!! Right now they're making me crazy the jays and the crows.

We would get Blue Jays and Blue Birds flying around our property in Binbrook Ontario when I was a kid. The Whisky Jack was reel neat to see and I remember the Killdeer. I like the photo it brings back good memories of my hometown. Thanks.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

They are training my wife right now. She fed them peanuts one day and now they come to the back of the house and screech so she'll come out with more peanuts which, of course, she does! :headslap:

Looks like an outfielder to me ;)

Thanks, MoinMoin. If you look closely, you can see the round white bowl full of peanuts. I love that Sigma glass :)
