NH Birding in November

No this was not 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.

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. 🙂

It Was 60 on Tuesday Not Today

What a weird winter this has been here in southern New Hampshire.
As you all saw on the new in the mid 60’s for our parade but then today just 2 days later we were covered in Ice.

The beauty still comes through but damage may follow tomorrow. Today I captured shots of some feathered friends and some natural food for the and a shot of JT from the warm day.

Pretty birds brightened this dreary day.
Border Collie
With a snowball her dad had tossed earlier after our walk she ate it all 🙂 She loves catching and eating snowballs but this one had sat there so she ate it.

The birds and red squirrels love these in the dead of winter so now I leave them till early spring then cut them all back.

Pretty birds and squirrels attract attention.

So the action on screen and out my windows has kept me amused but the weather well it has just been nuts!
