I love birds, and I love to photograph them. I am the kind of bird watcher that prefers the birds come to me, so I just put out bird feeders and bird houses in my back yard to attract them. On occasion I like to visit the bird sanctuaries such as the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, but I don’t go out too often with binoculars to seek out different bird. I am however thrilled when a new bird I have not seen before comes and visits.
I recently moved, and so far have not had very much luck in attracting too many different birds. I have only put out bird seed, and it seems that the squirrels like it better than the birds do. So with the cooler weather approaching, I am going to try some suet and see if that works a little better then the bird seed.
I find birds hard to photograph sometimes, as they don’t sit still too long. It always seems that when I go to grab my camera, and by the time I return to take the photo, they have flown away.
Here are some of the birds I have captured.
