The usual suspects

Even though I took the day off today, on a scale of 1 to 10 my get up and go probably maxed out at .75. So for the most part I puttered around my apartment and took photos of birds when I noticed them around. However, not only did it not rain but the sun even shone for a while, making it downright balmy outside (for this time of year, anyway); I decided I should probably take advantage of it while I still could, and stepped out to get a few foliage shots:

Leading things off for today's round of bird photos, a close-up look at a Titmouse:

"What the heck is that human doing in there?"

A White-breasted Nuthatch mid-blink:

This Chickadee apparently finds getting just one seed at a time too inefficient:

I liked the slightly fanned wing in this shot:

I picked this because of the spider you can see dangling from the perch opposite the Chickadee's:

I snapped this shot just as the bird came in for a landing:

Eventually the Purple Finches joined the party:

A close look at the female Purple Finch:

And the male:

The two of them together:

Finally, probably one of my best shots yet of a bird in flight:

  1. Great photos, Sara. The bird coming in for a landing (touchdown in 3... 2... 1...) made me snicker, for some reason.
