    Went out to my backyard this afternoon specifically to capture one of the Dark-eyed Juncos that I just love. As I was sitting here, bored to tears, I saw this little gray puff-ball. I thought it was some type of Warbler at first. Cool I thought, since I have yet to capture a good Warbler too. I got a few decent shots to help me ID this guy. Come to find out this was a male BushtitÂ…my first. Hope to see more of him in the future!

    Excellent shot! Bushtits are probably one of the most adorable animals in existence.

    Yep, it is. Since I didn't know what this bird was, I was at least happy to have a decent shot for ID purposes. Now that I know what it is, I hope to get another chance to get this one sharper. :mrgreen:

    On my life, I swear I did, too... and not just once.

    Regardless, that's a terrific picture.

    Awesome shot though! I think you captured it very well. It is a little soft but still overall great shot!
