_MG_2274 Bluebird - Listen to a robin!

(I at first thought this was a bluebird song, but checking it out at the Cornal bird site I realize it's a robin!)
Peggy told me the babies were about to fledge so I put my 300mm lens on the camera and parked myself near the nest, conveniently sitting on a utility box about 10-15 feed away. I quickly learned that ISO 200 wouldn't give me a fast enough shutter speed for sharp shots. I'm assuming this is "Dad" and he was aware of my presence and very reluctant to enter the nest to feed the babies. The noise of the shutter release/mirror slap definitely bothered him. Having

Very nice. Definitely sounds like a robin which Gary pointed out that they're related to.

A very nice image, nice color, clarity, DOF . The sound enhances the enjoyment of viewing the photograph.

Great photo and wonderful sound Isabel. What is neat about this is that we have a lot of bluebirds around here but I had never realized which song was theirs. Now I know! Thanks for sharing.
