A Bird Watcher’s Paradise

It’s been a long while since I’ve shared……so I’ll try to make a comeback with a few of the amazing birds who have been entertaining me here at el Rancho today.  Click on any of the film strips below to view in a larger window.

Bullock’s Oriole (a little shy at first, but he seemed to like the camera)
Black-Headed Grosbeaks (female pictured in two center images)
Lazuli Bunting (a rare sight indeed)

  1. These are awesome pictures. It is so difficult to capture shy birds in good poses. These are sharp as a tack and have very pleasing bokeh. You do such an outstanding job with your photography…

  2. Thank you, Rick! You are too kind with your compliments. It’s actually much easier than it may seem to capture them…..because I always take the “lazy way out” and shoot from inside, through the window. That may also be what creates the bokeh you see 🙂 If I tried to get the little buggers from outside the house, it would never happen. They are quite shy indeed!
