I'm sure it does Les, but you still need to be there to take the great pictures you do. I'm down to blackbirds, sparrows and bloody wood pigeons now, even the tits have disappearedI have a large garden with a pond and a few trees- I also live 6 metres from the River which helps

Out of interest Les, is that pond at ground level, or have you built it up ?Then you need to get out there- I am a regular around the Somerset Levels ( Google it) I only shoot in my garden if I home, awaiting a delivery or something
which is quite often my flickr - https://www.flickr.com/photos/184767280@N02/
Sparrows do make nice subjects - I often photograph them in my garden and around the area
more often the birds are frightened away by my resident Grey Squirrel- who I do capture on a regular basis

I'm considering building a pond above ground level in my garden, mainly so I can get easier reflection images. Due to an old knee injury and an ongoing back complaint, I don't bend that easily these days...
---- the benefit being I can sit with the Back door open and shoot, whilst having coffee ...Les...
Lez do you sit at an open door - i would have to as the tree/feeders are at an angle - do you use camo netting..?. Due to an old knee injury and an ongoing back complaint, I don't bend that easily these days...
that's my problem - to view the feeding station in the tree i would have to sit at the doorway openingNo I don't use camo John- just sit well back from the door fella
I do use camo when I'm out on the Levels of course.........Les...
that's my problem - to view the feeding station in the tree i would have to sit at the doorway opening
hence the idea of a camo sheet
on the Levels - a gillie suit or a pop-up hide..?
that suit is brilliant...wish i had one when i shot ducks in ManitobaI use both - Not quite a Ghillie suit but Real Tree advantage
hope this helps ?.................Les ..

the link gave me an idea......
the birds are used to the car parked close by - a blanket covering the windscreen in the sun doesn't faze them
so sitting in the car with a camo net over the side window maybe the answer
..like this (but smaller)

Definitely a female blackbird
Hi Les. Yeah, someone else said the exact same thing. I guess I'm bad at seeing or perceiving some colours, I still can't see it in the bird, it's just the background that looks green to me. Apparently I'm red green colour blind though which is probably why. My white balance is always set to auto in the camera but I think I adjusted the temp and/or tint in lightroom and that probably made it green. Your starling looks great! I don't know if I ever had them in my garden.Look a little green to me- what WB settings were you using?
