This winter weather is keeping me in the house these days, but it's not keeping me from making a few pictures of my birds. I liked the way the background turned out behind this sweet little Goldfinch.
I caught three at one time on this shot today. Most of these pictures were made from the sun-room. I placed a table outside beneath one of the windows and set the feeder on the table. Then I cut down a small tree and set it up for a place the birds could rest before going to the feeder.
They hardly notice me in the room photographing them. As long as there is no sudden movement or noise, they let me get pretty close. In this picture, the Pine Siskin joined the Goldfinch. I'm not too fond of the Pine Siskins, because once they find the feeders, they come in big droves and gobble up too many seeds!!!
The Chickadee is one of my favorites! They dart in, quick as a flash, and grab one seed before zipping away!
One female Cardinal stopped by briefly this morning.
Here's one more Goldfinch. They are not easily frightened so they are good subjects.
This is a Dark-eyed Junco, or snowbird, as we used to call them.
All the birds enjoy the water. So many days it is frozen and they appreciate it when I give them a fresh drink. This picture was made out the front window. I really would like for us to get a good snow, because that really brings the birds in to the feeders!!
