This will be a nice challenge for lots of photogs here. It seems like a popular subject for folks w/ long lenses. I won't be able to participate but looking forward to see some above average bird photos here.

I don't have a long lens either. Maybe using bird or birds as a composition with the tree or feeder? Birds in a scene?

Sure - seagulls at the beach, pigeons in the park, macro feathers, geese migrating, ducks waddling... be creative. My longest lens is only 230 so I’ll be taking my own advice and trying to get something usable - maybe this is the week that elusive cardinal will stay on my backyard tree long enough for me to grab my camera and open the kitchen window!

If I see a bird it will be a dot in the photo, unless I'm lucky.

Gray day in DC but I committed to share whatever I shot during a walk along the promenade at Long Bridge Park (end of the runway DCA).

Chance to practice with the AF.

I'd go along with decoys, especially the display-art ones that have a lot of details.
