Yesterday I spent some time photographing my backyard beauties - again! I never tire of it.Robins are hard for me for some reason - this one actually came out with some feather detail.
And this is my perfect little model - here in the "bird tree..."
The little house finch sat for an unusually long time while I clicked away........
Then she turned the other way, and I saw why she was so still; she has a pretty severe-looking case of house finch eye disease in her left eye. She's a sick little bird - so sad.
We went out to Shenandoah Nat Park in the afternoon - still not much avian activity out there. We did get our obligatory towhees, and had a wonderful walk in the mountains and dinner at the lodge. A great trip, but will be even greater when the warblers get there!
