NH Birding in November

BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY

Getting shots of birds in their natural surroundings is not as easy as shooting landscapes so I challenge myself with getting them as candid looks though I swear most of my feathered visitors pose for me.

Always watching me through the dirty windows.

Living here in New England we get an enormous amount of birds both visitors and residents.
The skies and trees are where they can be seen from dusk till dawn.

Never lacking in color

Truly it is hard to get my work done once dawn has broken so I get up early and do my inside chores then go out with fresh water for the heated spa, as well as scatter food as we have bears and it is much too early to be putting out food except for the Blue Birds they love mealworms and the woodpeckers, I get a variety of suet cakes to supplement the lack of bugs as the cold begins to creep in upon us.

Bird Birds love heated birdbaths

It’s so true snapping a shot of my landscape is easy but getting these beauties to sit still and pose for me is tough and if you try it is so worth the challenge.

Blue Birds love this tree as much as me.

Your welcome to reach out if you see a shot you would like on a card or maybe a metal print which is all the rage now. 🙂

So Hard To Stay Focused

It really is hard to focus after watching our teams send off rally it really is when you are a true fan as many are here in New England. Like our quarterback reminds us the world hates him except us ❤ and it brings him strength.

Now for a subject you all love to hear about SNOW yes more is promised but for us close to the coast our amounts will be so much less than northern areas of our region. Then cold air but not as cold as some of you will deal with I heard -50 F in the Dakotas now I remember those bone chilling temps from when I was trucking it was crazy and we had to keep our trucks running so the fuel would not gel. Brrrrrrr

Ok here are some shots from my yard which is mostly ice and small patches of snow after all the rain we have had.

I took JT for a stroll and will again today while we wait for snow she loves snowballs crazy girl she is 🙂
