A Good Day for Birding

It was a great day  yesterday. I had only two clients each at opposite ends of the day so I spent the hours in between at the park and had a great time! Oh, and check this out Deb. I didn’t know I had this until I saw the photo: Birds are as follows: black-capped chickadee, slate-coloured Junco, female pileated woodpecker, white-breasted nuthatch  x2, black-capped chickadee, blue jay, red-breasted nuthatch, female pileated woodpecker, male pileated woodpecker, and male pileatedwoodpecker Most were shot in aperture or shutter priority with an ISO of 800.

  2. The pileated woodpecker photos were fantastic, especially that bottom one… wow! I keep trying to get a halfways decent photo of one of these, but each time my photo ends up blurry. I think my best chance is to try to photograph one after the leaves have fallen, so I’ll have more light and can have a faster shutter speed.

    I love red-breasted nuthatches. We only get them down here in the winter if there is a shortage of nuts and seeds up north. I had several wintering in my yard last winter; it was a real treat. I think they are so cute!

    The other photos were good, too. And it was nice seeing the slate-colored junco. 🙂

  3. I was feeding chickadees once when a red-breasted nuthatch landed in my hand-so light and I was so excited.Yes I got quite a few of the pileateds that day and very happy with the detail in that last one, except for cutting off the tail.

  4. Wow, the woodpecker shots are really good. They are hard to sneak up on and even to find in the first place.

    • It flew right over me and I knew it was going straight to the bird feeders. It was literally 5 feet ahead and in the open. (that’s the last shot). then it moved in to the woods and there were sticks in the way but did get some clear shots. I followed it then saw the mate and alternated between the two.They got sick of me then flew away Kind of wished I backed off earlier and gave them some peace but was so caught up in getting a decent shot.
