Wow Paul....what a capture!!!! #239204

Leanne M.E. Boyd April 21, 2005

Cute shot, Paul! #1274001

Paul Conlan April 21, 2005

Charlene and Leanne... Thank you for your comments. I took this photo out one of the windows at my office (second floor). The holly tree was filled with the birds which must have been migrating. I haven't seen them since. Best wishes... #1274043

Michael McCook level-classic April 21, 2005

Cool Shot Paul. It pays to always have your camera with you. #1274100

Vicki Hunt April 21, 2005

I might have to have this one in my "Paul" collection of photos. It is really one of my 2 personal favorites of yours...(Mary is the other!) I love it! Are you sure you didn't clone one bird 8 times???? #1274382

Paul Conlan April 21, 2005

Michael and Vicki... Thank you for your comments! I've read this: "These social birds have the amusing habit of passing berries from one bird to the next down a long row sitting on a branch, until one bird eats the food." I didn't see them passing berries but evidently they often sit in a row like this. Vicki... Cloning? Hmmm... maybe one bird head to another. Ha... A copy can probably be arranged. #1274634

Dorothy Neumann April 21, 2005

Neat image, Paul! How unusual that they were all looking the same way...it makes one wonder about Vicki's multiple cloning suggestion. #1277504

Paul Conlan April 21, 2005

Oh... my photo friends are so skeptical of my work! Ha... Thanks for your comment Dorothy. #1277557

Lori Carlson April 22, 2005

Paul Conlan April 23, 2005

So tweet!? Ha... That's bad Lori! But... thank you for your comoment anyway! Ha... I'm glad you like the photo. #1283204

Sanjay, Jim, Dorothy and Carol... Thank you all for your comments and congratulations. I just wish I could get the birds to come back and pose some more. I guess that won't happen until next year on their way through Atlanta. Best wishes... #1381690

Paul Conlan October 23, 2005

Jacqueline and Bill... Thank you both for your recent comments on this photo. I don't photograph birds that often, because I'm not that good at it, but couldn't resisted when these seemed to pose outside my office window. Best wishes...
