I enjoy seeing the birds around me.I will admit that there was a time where I was a more active birder, but I am quite certain that I will always love the birds and also try to get pictures of them.
Once again, all the bird photos in this post were taken on my yard, many in fact as I was standing on my deck.
Obviously,these pictures were taken a few weeks ago, because, by now the trees are bare and we have a layer of snow on the ground.
I think this Blue Jay looks so pretty, almost hidden by all the leaves.
I have a young Oak tree a short distance from the window feeder.This seems to be a favourite staging area for the birds.
On the deck railing,I have a heated birdbath.During most of the year it is simply a birdbath, but once we have freezing temperatures,I plug it in and the birds have access to water from which to drink.
This fall,I have enjoyed the presence of some Pine Siskins. It has been a couple of years since they have been around here.
The small Red-breasted Nuthatch is around all year.Recently I have seen up to three of them at once.This bird does not mind being close to humans, in fact will come so close that I can almost feel it's wings.
One final shot, this one without any bird in it.By now you all know that I love catching sunset pictures at Lake Minniwasta. Every sunset is unique and beautiful in its own way.
Kindness is the oil that takes the friction out of life.
