Pigeon Portrait

I went out and sat in the photoblind this morning for a couple of hours photographing both Band-tailed Pigeons and Steller's Jays. In fact those were the only birds that came to the bird feeder. I heard a couple of Mourning Doves and one Pileated Woodpecker as well as some Nuthatches but none of them made an appearance. This Bandtail portrait was my favorite from the morning. Photographed with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens at 600mm. Camera settings were AV mode, ISO 800, F 8.0 at 1/60yh of a sec. God's precious light and love to all, chris To learn more about photographing birds in your backyard please check out my book, "Secrets of Backyard Bird Photography". It is available in both hardbound and as an ebook at most booksellers and online at Amazon. Paste the following into your browser.
