Lots if good advice, Kevin!

I checked my Canon PowerShot SX500IS and found that it does have a "TV" setting, but I can't find a way to adjust the shutter speed, which seems to be set at 1/125, and can't find any markings on the body that looks like three sheets of paper.

However, I am going to begin carrying the camera during my morning walks and will play around with the TV setting with the back yard critters to see what I can do.

Here's a few more shots from Tulare. Plowed field that's been flood irrigated - otherwise know as a bird buffet.

Don - your camera will go up to 1/1600. On the back, beside the screen, is a dial with a serrated edge. In TV mode, turning this will set the shutter.

In the centre of this dial is a Function Button. Pressing this will bring up a function menu on the screen. At the bottom of the screen, it will tell you how you navigate within the screen. Go down the menu and you will see a square which is the setting for Continuous Shooting.

increasing the shutter speed in the garden will improve sharpness - try 800, 1000 and 1200. And use the viewfinder - closing the back screen should make it operable on a Canon. By using the viewfinder it provides important stabilisation for the cameras because of the way you will be holding. And open your eye as necessary to see when the birds are.

For anyone else reading this, the feature settings are similar for most cameras, except that the control wheel for shutter speed may be on the top or front of the camera.

Wayne - interesting shots.
