Fun With Birds #1......

......I love watching birds and I have a lot of them to watch. So far this year, more different kinds than usual.......

I always see cardinals every day. And, poor little Justin! His head seems to be a popular place for several creatures to rest on.

I have managed to get a few fairly good hummingbird pictures this spring.

It takes a lot of waiting, watching and patience.

I am envious of those people I see in pictures with these little creatures eating right out of their hands. This is about the best I can do.

Recently this woodpecker has been flying in and out a lot.  A couple of almost silhouette shots is all I have been able to get.

They seem like nervous birds, darting about in a hurry, using almost intimidating actions.

There has been a lot of activity in and about the birdbaths.

It is pretty common to see titmouse birds splashing or drinking.

This day it was a female cardinal

A rare sighting in my yard - a finch.
In part two I will show some rather unusual backyard birds. Interesting!


  1. It looks like some of them are watching you watching them :-)

    1. My squirrel and turkey pictures are really like that and that is exactly what is happening. Some will be shown in part two.

  2. Love watching birds! I FINALLY took some good hummingbird pictures also last summer. I think my husband thought I was nuts sitting out in the garden for hours at a time! But it was worth it. I think the challenge of getting the right shot is half the fun. I love your pictures!

    1. Having a faithful follower like you appreciate and enjoy my pictures makes all that sitting or standing in place for so long that I can hardly move again well worth the effort! Thank you.

  3. Love the bird photos, Betty! You have a great eye! :)

    1. Thank you, Susan. I am glad you enjoyed it. Watch for #2 soon.
