Catching up after a week out of town.
Thought I would share some of my fav bird photos from last week at my moms. Downy woodpecker – small cardinal sized bird
Really pleased with these.
Only took about 500 or so. 😳
Paintings or postcards from some of them sooner or later but in the meantime great for reference photos. Carolina wren. My very fav photo I think
It’s easy to draw a wren but harder to remember what exactly their wings look like or the white around their eyes.
Blue Jay- they run the feeder unless the red bellied shows up.
OK so I like the Jays. Naughty bossy boys.
Or hmm are they girls??!
Tufted titmouse – sweet tiny speedy birds that zip in and out too fast for photos.
an elegant bird in his tuxedo. Towhee about as good as he got too. Zipped in and out or was in shadow.
These were taken with my handheld Nikon with a telephoto lens on sports setting. I have hit Del Del Del a lot. Sometimes I ended up with just a tree and no bird.
