Stray Birds

Carolina Chickadee - Bisset Park - Radford, Virginia  

I have found the most AWESOME FREE E-book that I just had to share with you
It's Called - Stray Birds by Rabindranath Tagore
It has some of the most beautiful verse I have ever read


The first verse:
Stray birds of summer come to my window and sing and fly away.  And yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall there with a sigh.

So cute. It looks a lot like the black-capped chickadees with which I am most familiar. :)

beautiful the chickadee! Tks too for the link to the e-book. I know somewhere in the past I have quoted one of the author's verses, perhaps that's where it had originated from.

That's a gorgeous capture of the chickadee Kerri. May I ask what equipment and settings you used? (I have recently moved up to a "bridging" Nikon P510 [from a Nikon point-and-shoot]and am endeavouring to learn more than just leaving the setting on automatic! Would appreciate any tips you may wish to share.)

What a great little bird - we sued to have lots of similar ones in the UK - but not in Australia (sadly!)

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

Nice shot of such a cute bird! I always listen for them chattering in the woods as there are usually other birds nearby.
