Yup.... Very good advice. I might throw in that you can set up a perch near feeders for smaller birds. I cut down a small tree & put it in a Christmas tree stand & placed it near my feeders. That way you can get some shots of them without a feeder in the frame....

Thanks Gary.  I am really having trouble with noise in my photos.  So I am going to try changing the aperture.  Much appreciated.

Noise may be due to several issues. You need to upload an image along with the EXIF ino for us to look at to determine a work around...
