    You have quite the aviary, even though it has no boundaries. :)

    Yes, lucky the way things have turned out with the birds. I have an all natural back yard, that has a few acres of woods right behind it.
    In anticipation of getting deeper into photography this year, back in January/February I started setting up a variety of feeders, mostly out of natural logs & stumps, put up a few nest boxes, etc...got the birds started coming and now its all day, every day.
    The focus now is to come up with / arrange a few different natural looking objects to get some fresh settings / scenes for the photos...the latest one is the 3-4" diameter dead tree with a couple limbs on it...it draws them like a magnet to perch on it.

    Agree, quite the collection of colorful birds your seeing.
