    You just need an old Christmas tree holder and a bird feeder.....you can put the perch wherever you want

    When using a Better Beamer I have my flash on a bracket so the light source is probably 8-10 inches above the center of the lens. Additionally it helps to use a very low power on the flash. You can dial it in manually....I typically use 1/16 power or lower. Also you can use ETTL....I typically use -2 to -3 stops.

    I put together a little primer on backyard setups for birds. It's posted in the tips section.

    Stuart, the pic looks very good, especially the bokeh. Bokeh was one of the issues I had w/the 100-400. Now just have your subject looking at you saying cheese.

    Joel, thanks for "appreciating" the ABE (and HBs) pix....the ABE pix are a little harsh, for the eaglets didn't offer any photo ops until mid-morning, but you take what they give you. And thanks for your tips link....very detailed.

    Perches; my outdoor studio perches for the song birds...far L perch to far R perch....are 20 feet apart and I'm able to shoot from my office window w/a camo curtain. Thanks for your input on this subject also.

    Love the baby bird shot, Jayson!

    I really don't do much birding anymore but still grab a shot when the spontaneous op arises. Here's one I shot last summer ...still waiting for some hb's to return to my backyard this year ...

    I like this.The pose is great and the perch is interesting. It's just that one branch crossing over the bird.....
