I decided to participate in the Backyard Bird Count again this year. However, I ended up with a serious crick in my neck all weekend. It was impossible to turn my head in any direction without severe pain until Monday. I did count birds for a few minutes on Saturday because they were having such a good time at my feeders. I tried my hardest to get some good pictures, but it's like they knew I was watching them and they didn't want to participate.
I got a couple of shots where if you look very closely you can see the bird through the leaves.
There's a tiny chickadee right in the middle of this shot. See him??
You can sort of see the House Finch on my feeder here.
This was taken through my dirty living room window.
Mostly I saw this guy hanging by his toenails as he cleaned out all of the sunflower seeds!
This was a common shot. I stood very still a few feet away from the feeder. The birds would approach and grab a snack, but then fly away quickly before I could push the camera button. Hmmmm...what could have caused their fear?
I believe this was the culprit...
We had fun though :)
