Saturday

Watching The Birds

Mockingbird
Sometimes he thinks he
Rules the Roost

Goldfinch on the "finch sock" filled with Nyger Seed

Male Cardinal stops for a Drink 

Cardinal....After the drink :)
All of these were taken thru the sliding glass door that leads
onto our deck - so there may be a little distortion.

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?

I haven't seen these birds in my neck of the woods. Now that I have a new camera that zooms better, I am trying to get shots of visitors to my yard. I love birds and enjoy the pictures you take of yours.

Irene said...

Love the cardinal pictures. I rarely see a cardinal on my deck feeders. When I do, they are gone before I can even find my camera. They are so gorgeous!!!

Gosh, your bird photos are amazing. So pretty and so clear too. It makes me think I'm going to have to hang a bird feeder up on my balcony and see what sort of feathered friends I can come up with...

AVCR8TEUR said...

Wow, how nice to have these birds come for a visit. You must have some lovely flowers or trees to attract them.

Moi said...

beautiful birds..beautiful shots!!!!!

guild-rez said...

Wonderful pictures..
The finch sock caught my interest.
Have to see if they are availble in Canada.

Mary said...

Even through the sliding glass door, you got some good photos! Yes, those Mockingbirds are full of themselves :o)

Gene Bach said...

We have mocking birds here, but no Cardinals. Be nice to have some really colorful birds instead of just a bunch of brown ones. LOL!

Old Wom Tigley said...

These are stunning shots, and to think you were behind glass.. excellent captures Kerri.

Jenty said...

Those are such good photos!! And such beautiful birds. I like the finch sock.

Salty said...

Kerri,
All good shots but the mocking bird is my fav!

You should begin seeing your spring and summer birds beginning to arrive soon. We had a large flock of robins here saturday morning.

YesBut said...

One word - superb.

June asks "Were you on a tripod?"
That would not only be a good balancing act, but painful :)

Catherine said...

Your Saturday snaps are fabulous Kerri! Wonderful captures all of them!

CG said...

Wow, Kerri, what great images. I wish we had cardinals in the UK!

oldmanlincoln said...

Actually all of the photos are very nice. And, I must say that I take most of my photos through the office windows which is thermal pane glass. I am not able to tell the difference if everything else is equal.

Thanks for your visit.

DeeMom said...

Awesome pictures Kerri, I got some decent snaps of our Goldfinches before our storm yesterdat

Willard said...

Great bird pictures, Kerr! I like them all!

Daniel J Santos said...

Beautiful photos, same beautiful birds.

MedaM said...

Wow, these bird photos are just amazing! I envy you, Kerri, on that great job done! :-)

RuneE said...

No distortion to be seen. They were excellent, especially the red cardinal (which I don't think we have around here).

Lara said...

unbelievable what nice visitors you have!

Ex-Shammickite said...

That reminds me, we're out of wild bird seed... gotta buy some today.

Kerri, the red cardinal looks like Photoshopped... it's got an amazig color!

photowannabe said...

Great photos and I love the different coloring of all the birds. I wish we had cardinals here, so pretty.

John Roberts said...

Birds are absolutely your specialty!

Meggie said...

Gosh Kerri, you photos are beautiful...even thru the glass. The red is so vivid! I've posted from my kitchen window and didn't get anything near as sharp.

Annie said...

I'd rather have these birds in my yard than hokie birds, anyday.

Sand said...

How in the world you guys get all these great bird shots? you must also have the bird thumb??

Sandpiper said...

Wow! Terrific pictures! Your windows are cleaner than mine. ;-) The birds won't touch my thistle sock.

I love your blog. I'll be back! Thanks for visiting my site yesterday!

gaz said...

i wish we had cardinals over here - they're beautiful.

bonnie said...

I've never seen a finch sock. Kind of cute. Can you imagine never seeing a cardinal? I have one here who has a lot of albino in her. She's fast though and I can never get a picture of her.

Dragonstar said...

Those cardinal pictures are simply stunning! You must have incredibly clean glass in that door.

Dick said...

Great, I can't imagine having such beautiful birds in my (small)garden.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Me again Kerri..
The bottom picture of the cardinal is one of the nicest I've ever seen.. would you mind if I saved it to my harddrice and used it as my desktop picture? I'd rather ask you know.

Heres hoping
Tom ;o)

Ms. Math said...

Your photos look like paintings - they are beautiful! I would never have known you were shooting through glass.
