Chippies of Spring

I went to Garret Mountain today hoping for some decent migrants ,but I had no good luck I had to cram some captures considering the weather was going to be a complete wash out this weekend , luckily I ran into a flock of Chipping Sparrows which helped out.





                          Along with a bonus Northern Flicker foraging for insects at a rotting log.

More CanonEOS7D

Yesterday I went to the Meadowlands with the 7D and was pondering on replacing the 7D for another model preferably a Nikon ,I felt my shots have not been as sharp as I wanted , but today I figured it was a combo of Mirror Slap vibration and poor focusing, so I decided to use the live view feature with the Hood Loop and it made a difference with the focusing and also the Live view mode is a quiet mode as in no predominate Mirror slap, and giving it was poor light along with High Iso settings ,I felt I had alot more keepers today.
