For the birds

We got to visit with my great aunt recently. Her back porch is very relaxing and we talked for hours. While we were talking I took the opportunity to practice “wildlife photography”. I snicker as I type that because how wild are birds that eat from bird feeders. Still, they are moving targets, I was shooting through glass and screen, and it was really windy. I was able to capture some interesting things.

The woodpecker has a long tongue. You can see that in his photo. I love how the brown…finch is giving me the look while her mate, the redder…finch? is busily eating away. You can see seed shells falling in the picture of the brown…finch? that is sitting straight towards the camera but has his head cocked to one side (and you can see his tongue). Not the best technically, by far, but enjoy!
