Birds on the fly

It's 50 plus degrees here in Michigan today and lots of sunshine.  We've gone from the most snow we've had in years to nearly nothing.  It's going to be in the 40's all week so most likely all our snow will be gone soon.  I'm enjoying the break in the weather but Craig is crying over his lost snow.  It's only the beginning of February so we could get a lot more before it's over.  
I tried to capture some bird photos with the sun shinning today.  The birds didn't want to stay still but I did catch these shots of the birds taking off.

Have a good weekend.....

You got some really neat shots.The Chickadee's wings almost look oversized.

Everytime I take pictures of birds in flight the wings are blurry. How do you manage to get such amazing shots?

Lucky Girl, Jessica.... Your bird pictures are beautiful. I like to see them 'in flight.'

My bird watching day did not turn out so good. I didn't see much today... DARN!!!! (Maybe they all are visting you now!)

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
