It is the season for baby birds here in Minnesota. During a walk around White Bear Lake last weekend my wife and I heard the distinctive sounds of hungry young birds, and sure enough I spotted this little Downy Woodpecker poking its head out waiting for dad to feed him. We went back to the same White Birch tree two days later, and the little ones had already left their nest.
This is a female Northern Cardinal, one of my very favorite regular birds here in Minnesota. They hang around all year and do not migrate south like many of our others birds do. I shot this at ISO 3200 at a 1:125 sec with my E-M1 with the 300mm F4.0 and 1.4x converter which yields the same field of view as an 840mm on a full-frame camera.
