Some Recent Birds

Friday, November 3, 2006
If I am working at home and it's a nice, sunny morning, I try to get outside to take a few digiscoped shots of yard birds in the early-morning light, before I start the work day.

Here are some recent captures I'm planning not to release to the delete bin.

Winter female American Robin at the Bird Spa (taken through glass). I love her subtle beauty.

Male house finch (with no eye disease!) on a birch perch I attached to our feeder pole specifically for digiscoping purposes. Birds look much better on a natural perch than a poop-encrusted feeder.

Dark-eyed junco (literally!). I could not get him to perch where he was not in shadow. Is THIS why they are called dark-eyed juncos?

You've certainly caught the subtle beauty of the robin in the early morning light -- she also looks peeved that you are photographing her while bathing! That look in her eye!

I started my first-ever digiscoping endeavor last week. And thanks to you, I now know why some of my photos look crappy! (can I say that here?)
Natural perches - brilliant.
