Best Bird Photos in January 2013

A few years ago, I was asked by a lady looking through my framed photo greeting cards, if I ever took pictures of anything other than flowers.  I was somewhat surprised by her question but it did get me thinking.  It is true that 3 years ago, flowers were my favourite subject. Now it seems that birds are consuming my interest . This is evident by my recent posts which feature the many nature pictures I’ve taken this past 2 years.

This is a case of photography opening up the world of birds to me, not the other way around. With few things that interested me in our recent almost ” snowless” winters, I went to Hall’s Rd. 3 years ago and became acquainted with “Jack” the blue jay and hand-fed some of the friendly chickadees.  That was the beginning of a passion that continues to grow. I want to share some of my better shots taken in my backyard since Christmas morning.  And I did finally “capture” the red breasted woodpecker pecking at one of our old maples!

    • Hi Ruth,
      Any time I do a new “post”, WordPress” will send you an e-mail notification. Since I do these posts quite infrequently, it’s the best way to see my photographs. Glad you enjoyed them.
      Jane

    The photos are so beautiful, Carter Jarrett and I looked at them together a few times, I love birds and seeing these varieties of birds reminded me of home.
    You are an amazing photographer.
