I'm stumped. Please help. I don't keep a life list, but I've identified several dozen over years of hiking and backpacking. We live in a small town about 5 miles from Lake Michigan and 5 miles below the Wisconsin / Illinois border. Mostly prairie, scattered clumps of oak-hickory. Only the last 3 years, in all seasons, I see small groups of a dull, grey, sparrow-sized bird, with one prominent whitish wing bar. No prominent color or marks on breast or head. The body is more slender than a sparrow, more like a Cedar Waxwing. They ONLY go for the thistle seed. Nothing else. What is this bird?? Help!

Thank you for your wonderful photos of birds. I am a beginning birder, still mostly back yard, but I have already used your photos to ID a Northern Flicker. I'm sure I will be visiting your pages a lot, and hope you don't mind. Your photos are much more helpful than the Audubon book, but the book is limited by size, of course. Anyway. Thanks.

I love the Birds and the pictures. A few days ago I viewed a Rose -breasted Grosbeek in my yard at my Bird feeders
for several hours I got pictures but my camera is 35mm..will try later..but he hasn't been back. How beautiful he was and
large!

Your photos are absolutely lovely. I live in MN and saw a bird this morning that I had never seen before. Somewhat larger than a robin, mostly brown with black polka dots and an inverted black triangle on it's chest and an inverted red triangle on the back of it's neck. It also had a long delicately pointed beak. It was on the ground under some bushes. Can you help me? Thanks for your sharing your artistry.

My camera and lenses are listed at the bottom of most my photos. All shots are handheld and no flash except the occassional built in flash on the camera. A nice tripod is next on my wish list and then n SB600 flash.
Fred Relaix23-Dec-2006 17:13
Very good wildlife pictures. Could you include your gear in the description? I am curious how you achieve some of these shots. Anyway, congratulation for your work. Regards, Fred

Thanks for the nice comments on my Osprey gallery. Answer to your question about shooting mode, I use aperture priority. You have some very nice shots also.

Thanks for your nice comments...
You ask how I get that little birdy in my stylesheet.

Take a look at it (you can download it viahttp://css4.pbase.com/styles/68912.css and
modify it for your own needs).

This file contains a section

body{
margin-bottom: 20px;
margin-top: 0px;
background: rgb(70,70,70);
background-attachment: fixed;
background-image: urlhttp://www.pbase.com/image/50551002/original.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: bottom right;
}
where the background image points to an image I uploaded to pbase in a private
gallery. It's basically the bird you commented on with the background replaced
by my galleries background color.http://www.pbase.com/image/50551002

Not much to it... Have fun!

Hi Richard

Don't worry, no need to get freaked out - we have different middle names! Mine's Glyn not Todd. Love your bird and wildlife photos, very nice indeed.



Patrick Keanu 09-Oct-2005 05:19
You have beautiful photographic images. I really love the solfness of the images that you have captured of the birds and nature scenes. Very well thought out and very strong compositions. I love the use of your cropping techniques. You are a great photographer and very talented. I am very admire your many talents. Thank you for sharing and many great advice you have given me. Good luck.
Ian Johnson06-Oct-2005 23:33
The bird images are outstanding. I am impressed by the sharpness of the Sigma lens (must check it out myself). And thanks for your comments.
