Not sure at all what the first bird is, next I am guessing is a Chipping Sparrow and the yellowish either a Tennessee warbler or a Blue Wing warbler and of course Carolina Wren

Nice shots.

 

The top one looks like a female Goldfinch.

 

The warbler possibly a Pine Warbler.

 

Thanks. Didn't go to the 3rd to last page in Sibley's to find goldfinch and Pine Warbler it is.

Loon, what lens , iso u using?, awesome hawk pics

I have 2 lenses I use., a 300mm 2.8  fixed lens that is close to 30 years old (no vibration reduction) and a 200-500 5.6 lens. These get hooked up to the Nikon D500 most of the time. I also have a Nikon D300s I use once in a while. The shots above were between 360 and 800 iso. The last 3 were the 800. I also have a 1.4 teleconverter that I use sometimes. It brings the F stop to 4 on the 300 and 8 on the 200-500.

 

Generally I let the camera choose the iso. I make adjustments until it's in a range I'm willing to accept.
