Feeding birds.

A male House Finch visits our sunflower feeder. I keep at least one feeder up year round. With other food sources so plentiful at this time of year I don’t keep it constantly filled. I like to have them visit because I do enjoy hearing their song.

Silhouetted

A Cooper’s Hawk, viewed against the early sky just outside my workplace on a very cold winter morning.

A photographer’s note: I used a 75-300mm lens at full zoom on autofocus to shoot this through two windows. I was about 20 feet from the hawk, clearly visible to it and was concerned that any more movement on my part would induce it to fly away.
