Nature & Wildlife's Beauty and Behavior Through My Lens
Great job in two hours!
Thank you, Hans! I have one more post to show the bigger birds, all three posts from a two hour walk. It was fabulous!
I always get the house finch and the purple finch confused. They are very similar in markings. It would be easier if the purple finch was purple.
I’m still hoping to see and photograph a Purple Finch some day! I read to keep in mind red versus raspberry coloring. And I so agree, wish it was purple, that would certainly be easier! 🙂
You were really busy in that short time period. What a great job in capturing so many different species!
Thank you, Susan! It was a blast with so many around. My next post will finish all the species with the bigger birds. 🙂
That first one would be a lifer for me too. My goodness, you had a lovely birdy day! These are all wonderful images and sightings, Donna!
Thank you, Deborah! Now I know why it is called the “Great” Marsh Trail. 🙂 Migration is in full swing around that area, so that was a plus. Next post is the bigger birds from the same walk.
Awesome! I’m looking forward to the next post then. 😀
A lifer again Donna, you did so well on your birding expeditions. These little guys are all beautiful and a delight to behold, you have done well to capture them all 🙂
Thank you, Ashley! Not bad for a couple hours, eh? 😉 It was fabulous!! One more post of the final bigger birds from the same walk to come.
Congratulations! For the new lifer! How about the black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus), remember that is not the Carolina Chickadee (Poecile carolinensis). I don’t see it listed as lifer. Great photos, Donna. 🙂
Thank you, HJ! I had photographed and recorded the Black-capped Chickadee several years ago, and plum forgot. Darn, I was excited to ‘add it’ as another number and then saw my records. 😉
Nice takes, Donna. I esp. like the song sparrow framed in the twigs. 🙂
Thank you, Eliza! Me too, I liked the simplicity of it. And he thinks he was hiding. 😉
They are wonderful group of birds that is one of my fav, and is very challenging to take pictures but you have wonderful capture
Thank you! The challenge of getting their photos is the fun part! 😉
Yes, also think so
Cute little birdies!! Beautiful pictures, Donna!!
Thank you, Indira!!
Nice selection-I enjoyed looking at them.
Thank you, Jane!
You kept your eyes wide open as usual. A fine selection.
Thank you, Tom!
Very Nice series of images Donna! Enjoyed seeing them!
Thank you, Reed!
You go, girl! The list grows.
Cute little buggers. I love to hear Finches with their deep voices.
Thank you, Vic! 😁 I like and get your ‘deep voice’ description of the Finches, now I’ll think of them that way.
As a teen, I had a friend/classmate that had domestic, little finches in a cage in her house. I loved hearing them talk to each other. They have a soothing quality.
I always liked seeing them in pet stores. 🙂
Lovely! I have captured some of these birds. Nice to see your shots. The chipping sparrow photo is amazing!
Thank you! I think that Chipping Sparrow was begging for a shot, lol. He just sat there looking at me, I kept refocusing and snapping, trying to be sure I got a good shot. Felt like he was saying, hurry up! 🙂
Nice to see song sparrows from another part of the country! Love these little birds. I’ve never seen a Northern Rough-winged Swallow before — congratulations, Donna! 🙂
Thank you, Barbara! I seem to be ‘on a roll’ with new birds. (hint hint) 😉
The Rough-winged Swallow photo is fantastic. I’ve only seen them a few times and always moving so quickly after insects that it was hard to get a good look.
Thank you, Martha! I think this one wanted its photo taken, no others would let me get a lens on them. 😉
