Fall Birds Of Manitoba

In my last post, we looked to the heavens, to see the beauty displayed there.Today,we come a little closer to earth, still in the sky, at least for some of the shots.
I have loved birds for a very long time and still do.Sometimes they can be a challenge to photograph, but I keep on trying.


The diminutive Black-capped Chickadee,may be one of the easiest to photograph, at least if you offer some food or water.


The Red-tailed Hawk,on the other hand is usually not very cooperative.Well,this bird proved that to be wrong.He/she was perched on a road sign, just at the edge of the road and I was stopped on the road, across from him. Many shots later,I left with the bird still remaining  on it's perch.


Same bird as the one above, slightly different editing.


As the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were preparing to head south, they came to the feeder regularly.This gave me many chances to get a picture.Of course,I would have loved to see an adult male with the ruby gorget/throat,but had to be content with this one.


I had virtually no Baltimore Orioles in spring, but they sure loved the nectar feeder in early fall.Once again,I had many chances for photos. I will spare you the agony of scrolling through too many pictures and just share one.

Something To Think About:
I’ve never found time spent amongst nature to be a waste of time.

  4. You are better than me at snapping birds. I find that even with feeding the tiny chickadees, they jump and start around so much, they are wired! So it is hard to snap them. But a hawk will sit on a post beside the highway. I love your first hawk shot the best, the colors are so intense and beautiful! And what a great capture of the yellow color of the Oriole! Great hummer too!

  9. the hawk is so beautiful, once a hawk sat so long and still on the power line I thought he was hurt and could not move... this one must be doing the same thing mine was, waiting for the perfect hunt....

  11. Love our fine-feathered friends. We see all sorts of 'other' birds come through when they are migrating south. Your Oriole is beautiful. We don't get those here.

    Lovely post, thanks Ruth.

  15. I too love birds. Regular visitors are the chickadees who are quite friendly. The hummers are also a favourite. I hope they don't get caught up in the storms down south.
