Another one that was a little difficult to take this morning. I had to zoom in and my hand always shakes a little bit when I do that. It was hard to get a photo that wasn't blurry to the point you couldn't tell what it was.

I'm honestly not sure. We're about 10 minutes from Horicon Marsh, the largest marsh in the United States, and we tend to get a wide variety of birds that pass through town on the way to or from there.

@srhelmer Why not buy a book on the birds of the area?

If you can't put your camera on something firm to keep it steady, stand with your legs slightly apart and press your upper arms firmly to the sides of your body. Try it and tell me if you can keep your camera from shaking.

I'll try. The whole reason I'm trying to practice by taking animal photos is so I can get decent photos of my daughters when they are skating. Action photos still elude me.

@srhelmer Never take photos of children and small animals from above. Go down to their level. If you don't, your children will alwaYS LOOK LIKE MONSTERS WITH BIG HEADS AND SHORT LEGS. (Sorry!)

I don't. I think it's either some sort of sparrow or a swallow
