Today I am taking you to some of our local birding spots.
This first picture is taken right on our yard.
We enjoy the birds as they come to the feeders,and this Purple Finch is a true delight.
Below is a Red-winged Blackbird.
This picture was taken just a few miles east of town,where there is a small pond.
As you can see he was singing heartily,and giving me lots of chances for pictures.
Going south and west of town,we found this Red-tailed Hawk.
I know it is not a perfect shot,but I like the action,as he is landing.
Back in town,we head to Livingston Nature Park.
It is still very quiet here,but this Robin showed up among the brush.
I think he was trying to hide from me.Guess it didn't work.
Also in Livingston Park Jake and I found a pair of Coopers Hawks.
Here is one of the birds perched beside their nest.
The tree is very tall and therefore the picture is at a bad angle.
We will be watching this site for more activity.
In order to show the Hawk better,this photo has been cropped.
They really are a pretty bird.
This pair was not impressed with our presence and made a lot of noise,so we did not stay long.
As the spring season progresses we hope to find many more birds to photograph.
ENJOY EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST.
