@bigjt: I like the background. The starlings really stand out against the rosy color. I hope you and your equipment stayed dry!

Cheers... Brian

Brian,aa thanks, glad you like them.They are nesting in the eaves of our house so all i have to do is open the back door and within minutes they are on the fence either on the way back with grubs or as in #1 going mad at me for standing in the doorway with my camera upto my face.
Regards John

Lucky for the chickens !

Nice detail on the Stilt. A closer crop might work, too.

Cheers... Brian
