What a blessing this rainy, dark day has been for my bird captures! Had to use ISO 1600, but still got some nice shots. These cute little Carolina Wrens have nested more than once in my front entryway. After watching them trying to build a nest on top of a supporting pole and repeatedly finding the nesting material falling down, I put a small iron skillet up there and was rewarded: http://www.pbase.com/isabel95/image/61302469

Great shot! Looks cold but well-fed.
