13. I like the angles of the branches/twigs and the bird's black cap and throat

I miss chickadees...I haven't seen them in this part of California- according to my bird book the Sacramento valley is in between where the coastal and mountain types live.

12. Thanks!

I'm getting hooked on this bird thing...they are just tough to capture. I hear them but don't see them.

15. The closer you can get, the better

If it's in your own yard, one or more birdfeeders, nests, and or birdbaths will draw them in and keep them distracted.

IMO, the B&W images you made are more attractive because the lens you're using produces a lot of chromatic aberration and because I just like B&W.
