Natural

We feed wild birds. The goal is to supplement their diet in winter when food is scarce. Additionally, there are times (like the very deep freeze we experienced only a couple of weeks ago) that the energy it might take to secure food exceeds… Continue Reading “Natural”

Sparrows Under Glass

It’s too cold. Too cold to let the dogs outside for more than a few minutes. Too cold to drive to town without preparing for a serious emergency. Too cold for birds. Oh, the birds. It’s so cold for those tiny little creatures that,… Continue Reading “Sparrows Under Glass”

Giardiniera

I thought last weekend was crazy cold, but this coming weekend promises to be even more outrageously frigid. It’s enough to make me wonder if warmer weather will ever arrive. One way to combat the feeling of doom is to bring Spring into the… Continue Reading “Giardiniera”

Lovin’ The Rustic Look

I take pictures, but I’m not really a photographer. I keep the camera setting on auto-focus because I can’t fathom having to do that on my own with the speed and directional changes that birds make. I only minimally understand the lighting “stuff” about… Continue Reading “Lovin’ The Rustic Look”

A Christmas wish to you from my husband and me.

Yesterday before noon there was mostly sun, with intermittent clouds. The trail cam that was set up by the “Butterball Diner” turkey lure had been running during the night and that morning, so Robert retrieved the SD card and I began the review (more… Continue Reading “Size Matters”

Two Is Better Than One

This post is part of a continuing saga of the Butterball Road Kill (aka Turkey Lure) which is my attempt to capture good quality images of American Crows and the local Hawks in my area. It took a couple of days, but we did… Continue Reading “Two Is Better Than One”

Fruit, Nuts and Worms

I have become increasingly smitten with the White-crowned Sparrows that seem to be sticking around for the winter. They are outrageously photogenic – which for me means they sit still while I get the shot in focus! Their feathers of many colors also result… Continue Reading “Fruit, Nuts and Worms”
