Bird Watching from My Window


We have bird feeders in front of our living room windows. Add a camera that zooms in and it's not hard to get some pictures of birds. Squirrels too, like the one on this pole!

It helps that our yard is next to a lake, attracting geese and other water-loving birds. I love watching the geese land.

 





The red-winged blackbirds are back! I understand this is a sign of spring.

  3. The cardinal is quite striking. We see them up here, but not in the city, always in the country.

    It'll be weeks before the red wing blackbirds turn up here.

  7. That's a beautiful photo of a cardinal. We have a few out here in California, at what is called Dairy Mart Farms, near the Tijuana River.
    I love to see the Geese land. At Gunpowder point, as well as Salton Sea, we get a lot of Brant's and Snow's.

  8. I always like seeing the red winged blackbirds. Usually on the way to work, for me.

  9. You live in a wonderful place for birding --- and you must have the cleanest windows in the world! Even if I were able to have a feeder outside my window (sadly I can't) ... the birds wouldn't show up as beautifully as yours do. I'm impressed.

  11. Love the birds flying in formation you shared with ALL SEASONS! We don't see here as many birds as deer:) Great captures of the birds, Linda - have a great week!
