INDIGO

A flash of blue, and it’s gone. The Indigo Bunting is a little bird that moves about quite quickly. They do come to feeders, but I’ve chosen to not put out seed this summer – first because I think we provide ample native seed… Continue Reading “INDIGO”

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”

Serenity

Because I am usually trying to display a bird’s unique characteristics, I usually crop photos to present just the bird. In reality, the bird is a tiny bit of information in the middle of the photo because typically I have to maintain my distance… Continue Reading “Serenity”

Late Autumn

It was cold today. The wind was fierce. I wore two hats and a hood to remain on the edge of comfort while I sat patiently waiting for a special moment to materialize. It was worth it. Here are my favorites for the day.… Continue Reading “Late Autumn”

Winter’s Calling Card

If a Northern Cardinal in a barren tree doesn’t say, “Winter’s Coming!” I don’t know what else does. The overcast, gray skies, the leafless tree, the lovely female Cardinal perched as the only splash of color – it brought that tingle to my spine.… Continue Reading “Winter’s Calling Card”

Blowing Leaves

Mother Nature assembled her birds. “Dear cherished ones, I have a small request. I fear this season is racing by too quickly and if I blink, it will be gone. Please reenact the falling of the leaves so I may always experience the spectacle.”… Continue Reading “Blowing Leaves”

Autumn Bluebird

It’s been windy here for a couple of days. I’m glad that I took some photos of the fall colors before the leaves were carried away with the gusts. I love this photo of an Eastern Bluebird nestled among the burnt orange leaves of… Continue Reading “Autumn Bluebird”
