More Birds from Cape May Fall Out

The Hermit Thrush has been called the "iconic" bird of the Cape May Fall Out on October 29-30. However, at the morning songbird count the American Robin led the way, with over 73,000 being counted. So as not to slight the American Robin ...


Like the robin, all of the birds were in a feeding frenzy. Yellow-rumped Warblers swarmed everywhere; this one fed in a juniper ...

Good birding!!

Wow, 73,000 robins! Your pictures are fantastic... That first Yellow-rumped Warbler photo is almost 3-D... I feel like the tail wings are coming out of the screen. Love it!

Yes, I agree with other comments, your images are stunningly beautiful. I know a little about garden birds and the most common wild birds around here in Germany, but I am no proper birder. So when I bought my first starter DSLR (Nikon D60) I took some decent photos around my bird feeders. They were mainly bickering greenfinches. Having seen your fantastic shots I realise I need to rob my piggy bank to get anywhere near your pictures in quality! Thanks for displaying such wonderful bird pictures.
