Foto Finish: Birds

Commotion from the Ocean of Life

 

Welcome back to Foto Finish!!  This week’s (optional) theme is birds.  I didn’t choose this topic for any certain reason.  I do miss the amount of birds that visit during the summer.  All the ones now are just plain hungry and don’t really visit.

Since birds are also “critters”, I’ll be linking up with Camera Critters and Saturday’s Critters as well.  After you’re done with Foto Finish, please click the buttons at the end of the post and visit some of their great photography as well!!

This is a pair of mourning doves that were in love.  They went everywhere together!!  Here’s my submission for this week’s Foto Finish, Camera Critters, and Saturday’s Critters….

Bird Food on a Wire

I have what I consider a pretty interesting photo today!!  We were outside watching the birds around the feeder when this bird on the wire caught our attention.  It swooped down and grabbed this bug and proceeded to take it back up to the wire.  The bug got away a couple times and the bird would swoop again and catch it in the air and get back on the wire to eat his dinner.  It was so fascinating to watch!!

Here’s my “bird food on a wire” shot…..

By the way, if anyone knows what kind of bird this is, I’d love to know!!  I know it’s not the easiest shot to be able to tell.  However, it’s gray with a yellow belly….and it obviously eats live bugs.

World Bird Wednesday: Cardinal on Feeder

I’m just so lost for time!!  It’s already noon and I’m just now posting for World Bird Wednesday. 

A couple weeks ago, we had a stay-cation.  Well, we ended up not-so-much staying.  We actually took a quick trip out to my parents house.  They have such a large variety of birds that feed there all time since they live in the sticks.  I spent as much time as possible watching the feeders, but many of the birds are shy when new people are around.  My parents being on the porch don’t phase them at all.  I did manage to snap off a couple good shots though and can’t wait to share them!!

Here’s the female Cardinal on the feeder….

Are you looking at me?? Yeah, well I’m looking at you too!!

World Bird Wednesday: Blackbird

This will be my second entry for World Bird Wednesday.  I got a brand new lens, so I was snapping photos of EVERY bird that came to our feeders.  I typically don’t let any type of blackbird (crow, cowbird, etc.) stay because they’ll eat us out of house and home.  They also force other birds away from the feeders.

I made an exception for this one!!  It was alone and I just loved the way the sun was hitting it.  You can see how very jet black he is and then the “blue” of his head.  It was a lovely specimen for my new lens!!

Here’s my exceptional blackbird visitor….

I’d like to say THANK YOU to anyone who might stop by and leave a comment.  We’re on a stay-cation and part of my agreement is to stay off the computer!!  To honor that, I’ve set my posts to auto post at certain days/times (except this one as it begins tomorrow).  That also means that I won’t be able to return the favor of commenting, but I will get you the next time!!  Thanks for your understanding and I’ll see you next time around.

World Bird Wednesday: Cardinal

I’m so excited as this is my first post for this meme!!  I’ve always wanted to join in WBW, but my timing just always seems to be off.  For my first post to this meme, I chose a bird that’s a very special visitor to our yard.

This is Mr. Cardinal.  He started visiting us last year with his wife.  About half way through the summer, she stopped coming and he came less often.  We often heard him calling for her, but for the remainder of the summer, she never came back.  I’m happy to say that this spring, Mr. Cardinal arrived singing a much prettier song.  And, he arrived with Mrs. Cardinal!!  We’re assuming that he found a new mate, as the other was just gone too long and something probably happened to her.

With that said, here’s our Mr. Cardinal…..
