At the final hour, I am posting my Sunday Stills from last Sunday.
This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Backyard Birding.
Birds fly from the front to the backyard constantly. We have plenty of trees and great cover in the backyard with a fountain and the front yard has the feeders. This week I was able to sneak around the shrubs in the front to get these photos. You can see more birds from my yard in my Bird Weekly post from last week here.
Carolina Chickadees have been hard to capture because they come, get their grub and leave. Quick little things. I barely clicked my shutter before this one did a “grab and go”.
Then the second one came in for a landing and stayed a hot minute! Gotcha!!!
The next elusive bird for me to capture is the Tufted Titmouse. We had four of them on the feeders at once but wouldn’t stay still. I finally got this one picking out his little morsel.
We have had a record number of Eastern Bluebirds in our yard this year. At one time a few weeks ago, there were 8 in our yard at the same time. It was very cool.
The Carolina Wrens entertained us in the spring while in lockdown. We had a pair that laid 4 eggs. 3 chicks survived and this was one of the parents bringing a moth to the nest. The Wrens are back and I’m sure we will have more young uns’ in a few months.
