"Not many songbirds have a tail band. The only species that comes to mind, Bill, is Cedar Waxwing. Their tail band is usually yellow but some individuals have a strong orange band that can appear quite red."

"Good thinking, Danny. If you consider hole quantity over hole size, the hundreds of holes stitched across tree trunks by Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers might put that species in the running, too."

You are welcome Ralph. I understand what you mean ... I do like the Exif info also, not for the GPS, but to understand how images are taken ... great learning tool. The GPS is nice if you have that option especially to record location of dragonfly sightings as I do. Good luck with it ... hope you get it working.
