B is for Birds

My parent became birders in the autumn of their years and it seems I am following suit. 


Peanuts for the blue jays, 


birdseed for chickadees, juncos, and sparrows. 


Here and there a woodpecker. 

Come and play ABC Wednesday with us here.

    1. Thank you, Amy. I am blessed with a tree not too far outside my window and a host of beautiful birds. Birding is rather fun.

  4. Great shots and I've seen many birders out with their telephoto lenses while I've been out shooting nature.

    1. A long lens is a must for catching bird photos. They are just too quick to take off otherwise.

  5. I love how you captured the woodpecker in flight.
    I really like watching the birds but don't put food out for them. it draws too many "pests". Maybe if we had the kind of winters you do, I would be a little more generous with the feeders.

    1. We have a few "pests" too, but I like watching them too, providing they are squirrels.

    1. I do struggle in the patience area. Having a big tree right outside my living room window helps.

  7. I'm really bad at identifying birds, other than a handful of males, such as cardinals and blue jays. I know THEM from baseball teams!

    1. I know the feeling, Roger. I'm learning them a few at a time.
