I’ve been having quite a few birds visiting my bird feeder this January. Above is a tufted titmouse. That’s probably the most unusual bird that’s visiting lately.
Last summer I bought a new camera (Canon EOS 70D). I was quite pleased to capture this sparrow in flight. I’ve even been shooting a few pictures in manual – for me, that’s bravery.
Here are a cardinal and sparrow together. Glad they can share the space nicely.
Then the cardinal flew to the tree.
Then he flew to the garage roof.
Is the cardinal looking at me?
I saw a mourning dove wander under a tree. Or did I see two? Michelle tells us that mourning doves mate for life. How romantic.
And here’s a chickadee, in my backyard tree! I took this shot in manual. It may be a bit too bright.
To complete this post of Highland Park birds, here’s a lady cardinal.
