Beautiful Bird Photos -- Taking Some in my Spare Time

May 22, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I've been at home, like probably many of you are, due to the Stay at Home orders because of COVID-19.  My husband and I feed the birds with two bird feeders, one suet feeder, and a hummingbird feeder.  This year we have lots of birds.  We have a cardinal couple who have been around since we moved in six years ago, a blue jay, a grosebeek, and two (or more) woodpeckers.  There are also orioles in the neighborhood but haven't been sure if they are eating from our feeder yet.  Thought I saw one yesterday, but will keep looking.

Anyways, because of my limited access to places, I've been watching the birds, and the other day I sat on the porch while some of the birds came to the feeders.  Surprisingly they came to feed while I was there.  One in particular, a downy woodpecker came to eat at the suet feeder while I was sitting only about 50 feet away.  My goal is take beautiful bird photos and I was able to take some of the woodpecker.

I was  lucky.  Normally the birds don't stick around the minute I start lifting my camera to my face, and holding it up there is very tiring for me. 

I really, really want to get a picture of the hummingbirds when they come by.  I plan on setting up my camera on a tripod and getting a remote control for my Nikon camera to get a beautiful photo of a hummingbird.  This may take me awhile so don't hold your breath.  

Meanwhile I hope you enjoy my beautiful bird photo of the male downy woodpecker.

Enjoy!
