One photo a day challenge: Day 86. Today was another great day to sit outside at home and watch the birds in the evening. Recently I noticed the arrival of Eastern Bluebirds to our yard. The Eastern Bluebirds have been checking out the Purple Martin house in our yard as they search for a nest site. The martin house usually ends up occupied by Tree Swallows, but some day I hope to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 81. Another beautiful day for bird watching at home. Warm temperatures. Bright sunlight. And Plenty of bird activity. I started off todays post work day birding with a walk around the yard. I wanted to see if there are any bird happenings that I couldn’t observe from the deck.

One phot a day challenge: Day 80. Today was a perfect day for birding. The weather was great. The sun was out. And the birds were active.

In that we often lose the ability… Read More

Baltimore Oriole perched on oak tree in Upstate, New York

One of my favorite song birds has always been the Baltimore Oriole.

Baltimore Orioles are probably one of the more well known species of birds again probably owing to… Read More

Grosbeak perch

I love nature. I enjoy nature in a wide variety of ways. One activity I really enjoy is watching birds. As someone whose always loved animals and been a science nerd simply observing bird behavior is endlessly fascinating and entertaining. As a photographer, creating photography of birds is enjoyable and challenging. More so than any other animal birds have the ability to appear one second and be gone the next. That lends… Read More
