Roufus-sided Towhee. Not a usual sight around MY house, sadly. They're pretty birds. Nice capture. :D

Hmmm not a Redstart - I believe it's a Eastern Roufous-sided Towhee. :)

These shots are amazing! How do you get such detail?
Reply
:icontailgun2009:
Tailgun2009 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2010
I think its the Nikon optics. I have learned though not to use the full 300mm zoom I keep it just below that and get better sharper more detailed images.
