Springtime backyard bird photography including Painted Buntings, Gray Catbirds, American Goldfinches, Northern Cardinals, and cute bunnies :)
A morning of backyard bird photography yielded a surprise – my lifer Pine Siskin joined the American Goldfinches at my feeder
An Ash-throated Flycatcher, several kinds of sparrows, and a Painted Bunting posed for my camera at Lust Road
Fantastic photography at the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive (LAWD) on a sunny winter morning. Ash-throated Flycatcher, Vermilion Flycatcher, Horned Grebe, and more!
I started to notice something funny in my backyard…all the birds like to pose on finials!
Fun photos of visitors at our backyard bird feeders – Painted Buntings galore :)
My first of spring Cedar Waxwings have shown up in the backyard, along with more beautiful Painted Buntings and American Goldfinches
Golden moments in golden light with my goldfinches!
Happiness is… …watching the American Goldfinches turn yellow and play in your flowers :) … seeing the female Indigo Bunting from last weekend – she stuck around! … finally snapping a picture of the elusive Prairie Warbler who has been mocking you for the past three mornings, and as a bonus, getting to hear him sing! […]
Backyard birding paradise – Painted Buntings and goldfinches! I filled my memory card and exhausted my camera battery. Bonus Indigot Bunting!
Recently I spent a weekend morning in my backyard – rather unusual for me, since mornings are usually when I venture beyond the backyard. It was fun to see my yard in morning light. This is the time of year that I love backyard birding the best. Flowers are blooming, the air is fresh and […]
I had an especially good morning birding in my backyard last weekend. Painted Buntings, yellow goldfinches, and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher in breeding colors!
American Goldfinches brighten up even the nastiest gray morning of backyard birding
So many colorful birds are visiting the feeders and birdbath these days! I love springtime!
I have to make a confession. I bribed some birds today. I had a few free hours (gasp!) and I decided to do some backyard birding. I confess to waiting to refill the bird feeders until it was prime photography time – after the household chores were done, the camera was outside, and the light was […]
My 2015 First of Fall American Goldfinch showed up a bit unexpectedly on November 15. A warm welcome to one of my favorite birds!
When the weather is gross, it’s time for backyard birding. Goldfinches and Hooded Mergansers and a head shot of a Mourning Dove!
They’re back! We had our first of fall American Goldfinches in the yard this afternoon. Yay!
Sadly, I’ve realized in the past week or two that the American Goldfinches in my backyard have migrated home for the summer. It’s always sad to see them go. They are such cheerful little birds and their songs are so sweet. I enjoy hosting them for the winter. The video below was taken back in […]
I finally pulled out my bird blind for the first time this winter. It’s a great way to get shots of the birds in my backyard. My blind is basically a big camouflage tent. There’s room inside for me, the Beast, my tripod, even a chair. I zip myself in as Rich laughs, then I […]
