    A very enjoyable series! Good job getting the wren to stand out from the similarly coloured background. Love the sheep. And very cool to see a condor!!

    Way cool! Really nice series! I especially like the wren. I'm going labor day weekend and can't wait!

    Great series. All are good, but whenever I see a Raven, [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm8x38USBiM"]this song [/ame]always plays in my head. Love how you caught it's mystery.

    Thanks. Both the wren and the sheep were within a few feet of me, so I guess I can't take too much credit-- they were posing :)

    Thanks!

    I'm really proud of the squirrel one-- they're less tame out where I was, so he wouldn't stick around to pose.

    That is a pretty good song. The ravens at the canyon are pretty scary-- a product of their taking advantage of the stupid humans who leave food around for them.
