Then I wasted way too much time trying to get the thrush with a grape in its beak. When I saw it approach I held the camera shutter down. At first, that sound startled the bird away.....
but it quickly returned for a grape. For some reason my camera stops continuous shooting if it's out of focus (or something) so I missed the action again. Tomorrow's another day.
Meanwhile, check out the incredible shots Alton Patton got of the bird a couple of days ago, grape and all.
Had a couple Red-breasted Nuthatches visit for a short while today and did not get a satisfactory photo of that species either. Here's a documentary-only shot.
