Most of these photos also show the effects of my ongoing experiments in using apodizing screens for nature photography. In less technical language: there's a window screen between me and the birds, and it's been too rainy to try putting the camera outside unattended. :-)
These are just casual shots -- I keep a camera (an Olympus C-730 ultra-zoom digital) on my desk while I'm working, and occasionally pick it up and shoot through the window. Later when the weather improves I may try something more elaborate.
