Bird action at the feeders is often frantic as most of you visiting here know so well. Trying to catch birds in good portrait poses requires patience along with shooting many many frames, I usually shoot burst with the camera set on high-speed continuous which sometimes results in catching birds as they begin flight. Here a Black-eyed Junco lifts one foot as it begins to take flight.
One Tufted Titmouse peers intently at the feeders as another seems to fall off its perch.
Without so much as lifting its wings a Junco hops across the top of an upright snag.
