As the winter carries on the birds keep on visiting the feeder.
All the pictures today were taken with the Canon SX50 HS.
This first shot is again taken through a window. I like the size contrast here.
The male Hairy Woodpecker on the left and a Red-breasted Nuthatch on the right. You can also see another Red-breasted Nuthatch partially hidden by the suet.
I noticed this bird in my maple tree the other day.He seemed to be finding something of interest on the tree. I saw immediately that it was a Waxwing,but was pleased to see that it was a Bohemian Waxwing.The rusty colour under the tail tells me that.
While I was outside photographing the Waxwing,I noticed this Hairy Woodpecker on the tree and took his picture as well. You can see that the ires have used this tree a lot.
A week ago,on a Sunday afternoon drive in the countryside,I came upon these birds.
At first I thought it was a Grey Partridge,but am pleased to see that it is a Sharp-tailed Grouse.
Three more birds joined him on this mound. I am quite happy with the performance of the little SX 50 camera.
Thought for Today:
Speak kindly of others - no matter what.
If we all followed this advice this world would be a better place.
