Found It!!!

I've been hearing this bird in our yard for a while, but yesterday I finally found him!  He was sitting on the line and chirping his song.

Now if I can just get him to come a little closer.  All of these shots were at 200mm.

If I try to enlarge the bird by cropping the shot, this is what I get:

I'll keep trying - I think I will go out and sprinkle the yard with bird seed the night before.  I always see the birds early in the morning. 

Have a wonderful Weekend!

I've never seen a red cardinal live, so this is pretty magnificent to me!

My husband is going to be a bird snob in his old age. He loves photographing birds. We have more bird pictures from our vacation to Costa Rica and Disney's Animal Kingdom than everything else combined.

@Renee - Wow! Birds are difficult for me. If I get close enough for a good shot, they fly away!

@Francisca - I am so surprised that you haven't seen a cardinal before!! You've seem to have been EVERYWHERE! :) PS - I love your blog photos!

I have a chirping bird that I can't find too. It hides in very leafy trees. I wonder if it's a cardinal. :) Congratulations for getting lucky. I hope your idea for getting it to come closer works. :)
