    From Wikipedia's article on Northern Cardinals:

    Young birds, both male and female, show the coloring similar to the adult female until the fall, when they molt and grow adult feathers.[10]

    I'm happy to report that is an old picture and any male cardinals seen at our feeders now look quite healthy!

    This morning's been a good one. I've setup a peanut feeder and am going some more variety now and was able to get a downy woodpecker on my perch.

    #1 On perch but in the shadows

    #2 In good light but on the feeder

    I'll keep at it and maybe I'll get him on the perch in better light?

    Dave Very nice pics. I really like the first one---But.....the exposure is a little dark on my monitor---could you bump it up just a tad.

    Nice shots,

    Bob

    Unless my monitor is calibrated just like Bobs I would have to agree. But a little more on the woodpecker than the background.

    Nice shots,
    John.
    Amateurs worry about gear, pros about the pay, masters about the light, and I just take pictures!

    Nice work Dave, background is smooth too.....just get some light on him! If you have a flash the Better Beamer works great for this situation.

    Bob - That's too funny, but he shouldn't be drinking and flying.
