I captured these two gorgeous redheads through the usual two panes of glass at 300mm. Wish I could have been a few feet closer, but my deck was a solid sheet of ice at 22°. Male cardinal and male red-bellied woodpecker

    Cardinal and flicker? Gorgeous capture...glad you didn't venture out on the deck, or you might have ended up looking like you were trying to qualify for ice dancing!!

    Very beautiful, Donald ... wonderful to get two of the prettiest birds together and both are posed perfectly...I know what you mean about two panes of glass as that is what I do also when I shoot pictures of the birds in the winter...Sometimes I have trouble with the camera focusing on the glass instead of the birds.
