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.
This male House Sparrow cut a fine figure as it paused while hopping around on a cedar bush just outside my workplace.
A White-breasted Nuthatch seems to consider the best way to help itself to this suet block.
I want to thank you very deeply, my follower, for making time out of your life to see what I post. I very much appreciate your patronage and hope to continue providing you with images you enjoy and look forward to seeing.
I wish you a safe New Year evening, and a prosperous 2019. Cheers!
Howdy and welcome to everyone who has seen fit to follow me. I deeply appreciate your making time in your lives to see my photos and read my comments.
An unpublished photo from four years ago today. An American Goldfinch visited our nyger seed feeder.
I was too slow to capture this Blue Jay before it moved.
ETA: Now the photo is posted.
I rummaged through photos and came across this one from July. I put out suet cakes for a week or two and this female Downy Woodpecker (link goes to allaboutbirds.org) regularly visited. She also visited the hummingbird feeder, right background, and I think was able to extract some nectar.
I resumed filling the seed feeders late last week and expect to see more visitors soon.
We set a table underneath the bird feeder, where it catches the seed spilling out of the feeder. This House Sparrow (link courtesy http://www.allaboutbirds.org) quickly took advantage of the bounty.
