Huntley Meadows Bird Walk - Nests
White-eyed vireo in the nest. Very near the board walk at Huntley Meadows. Canon 10D with 300mm lens. Hand focused due to all the branches in the foreground. Another white-eyed vireo was in a nearby tree singing loudly. We got good looks, but no good pictures of the other one.
Blue gray gnatcatcher nest at Huntley Meadows. I took about 20 pictures of her hoping she would look at the camera, and left thinking she hadn't cooperated. I didn't know I'd gotten one until I got home! These pictures were with the Canon 10D, Swarovski 65HD scope and 800mm adaptor.
