Really nice. It's tough to get small birds in flight. You did a fine job.

Getting BIF is a daunting task. You have produced well focused and well exposed examples of bird photos in interesting action poses. Yet I feel there is room for improvement. You invited critique. here's what I see that is both good and bad.
I'm assuming the photos were taken from a carefully contrived set up. I'm a little bothered by the lack of field separation. Is there a place where the bird could be shot against a less distracting background? Is the background far enough away from the birds that the background can be thrown into almost total non focus via DOF? Substitute (construct) a false but plain and out of focus background perhaps sky blue craft paper ? Could the feeder be moved to another position to better differentiate between the bird and background

Thanks for your option it is true. And thanks for looking. But:
My shooting area is 10 foot by 25 foot, I have 2 choices put up a false paper or cardboard background or remove the background in PS and replace it. But myself I like the natural look better.
