Backyard Summertime Nature in New Jersey.

Some birds at the bird feeder at dusk. Trying the new Nikon D850 camera out with a 600 mm f/4 VR lens and pushing the ISO as it was starting to get darker out. Some post processing noise reduction using Topaz Define. Chipping Sparrow, Northern Cardinals, and Blue Jays. The Blue Jay is a bit big for this bird feeder. Also, unlike the finches and cardinals it needs to take the sunflower seeds away from the feeder and find somewhere to break the seed open.
