My Bird Friends

Today I will share with you some photographs of our Bird Friends here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

We begin with a Female House Finch, then a whole House Finch Family, followed by the very elusive Killdeer ( very fast moving and seldome sit still for more than a few seconds, even caught one in flight..leaving ).

As usual , click on any photograph to enlarge for a better view.

Same Female different pose

Looking down at the feeder for Lunch

A Family of House Finches..notice the Male with the Red on his head.
I didn't notice it till I went to crop the photo, but you can see a Female flying up from behind the Day Lilie.

A Killdeer poking around the soil for bugs in our garden.

Another Killdeer.

A friend of the one above.

The real photographers challenge...capturing one in flight
They move so fast..really have to be prepared and fast.
