Two new Images with three previous ones – Winter Scenes

 

I thought I’d combine two new images – for the first time – with some older shots.

Well, two Male Cardinals and a large group of Sparrows a, some what blurry, Breakfast makes.

Male Cardinals Feeding

This is not the shot I was hoping for.  There had been twelve Males on the ground when I went to grab my camera – I came back to the window and a good many had been spooked off.

BLUE JAY waiting for the FEEDER

My wife and I enjoy the morning when this good looking Blue Jay arrives for his feeding. He’s not a bully but Sparrows, in particular, tend to fly up into the tree when he drops to the ground.

Female Cardinal waiting for the Feeder…thinks she’s hiding.

I shot this image yesterday morning as she waited to hop on the feeder. (feeder hook and cord visible on the left side of the shot.  She’s always at the feeeder with her mate seen on the previous post.

Male Cardinal enjoying a morning at the Feeder

This handsome gentleman is a regular at our garden feeder…feeder is just below him on another branch.  He spends time flitting back and forth from the feeder to the ground and seems content most of the time.

Sparrows Ground Feeding

These Sparrows were enjoying the banquet that had fallen from the Feeder.  My wife, Jean, fills the Feeder and within an hour it’s empty.  Sparrows, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Chicakadees and Juncos all enjoy the bounty. Oh yes, one persistent Starling usually shows up.

This pretty gal seems to be taking everything in around our feeder.  The feeder is actually below and to her right.

Peek-A-Boo to You

This Male Cardinal seemed determined I would not get his image.  I waited about a minute, camera in focus, before he turned his head toward me.  Fortunately, the feeder was almost empty.  I used my 75-300 Canon Zoom Lens for the shot.

Birds at the Feeder New Year’s Day

Birds at the Feeder New Years Day_edited-3_wm

I shot this image yesterday.  There were only a couple birds at the feeder.  Two Male Cardinals and one Junco.  A bit of the ole, De Ment, luck.  I just happened to hit the shutter as one of the Cardinals was in motion.  The other Cardinal is almost hidden by the dark of the window and the Junco looks on from the upper right. I have a good many images to load over the next few days.
