The light seemed bright but that was my eyes and brain compensating. Auto ISO still went up anywhere from 1250 to 3200. The sun was shinning but the sky was a washed out blue grey, so a lot of moisture/haze/dust. The 1.4x upped my Fstop to 8.0 contributed also. These shots have a lot of noise.
4 shots,
1. woodpecker exploring the 4x4 of the swing set, pecking etc-just now out there doing it again and calling-getting an answer- I checked, peanuts etc gone from the feeder they like. So I did a refill.
80D, 100-400+1.4 @ 560, 1/800 @ f/8.0, ISO 1000 hand held, spot meter, no flash.
2. on another 4x4 showing use of tail as third leg of tripod
80D, 100-400+1.4 @ 560, 1/1000 @ f/8.0, ISO 1250 hand held, spot meter, no flash.
3. on the rim of the terracotta saucer where I put a mix of bird seed and peanuts - Hmm, which one looks good?
80D, 100-400+1.4 @ 560, 1/800 @ f/8.0, ISO 2000 hand held, spot meter, no flash.
4. This one is Mine everyone else back off!
80D, 100-400+1.4 @ 560, 1/800 @ f/8.0, ISO 1600 hand held, spot meter, no flash.
Hmm, I know there are rotten soft spots here somewhere.

A very comical bird and beautiful shots, Jerry! The pale eyes give them a constantly surprised expression.

Thank you, and it was surprised when the jays competed for the peanuts or my dog plopped her little tail down next to the feeder to try and catch lizards hiding under the pot.
The woodpeckers and jays will also sometimes set up a racket when the peanuts run out. Even looking at my sliding door to see if I am coming with a refill.
