Birds Galore

The bird population around the homestead has been increasing daily.  I think we've had a lot of successful young'uns this year.  I've seen young morning doves, cardinals, Carolina Wrens and I do believe that there are some young'uns in the bird condo that the Great Crested Flycatchers have taken over.


It's not the greatest picture but it's the only one I could get before she ducked into her house.  She also ran off two squirrels the other day that were playing chase around the tree trunk that her house is on top off.  I believe she was protecting her young'uns.

It's been wonderful having the birds flit around the yard and singing their songs all day long.  Here's a few for you to enjoy...










I'm still trying to figure how to capture the birds without the images being so grainy.  If any of you photographers have any suggestions for me I'm all ears.

Till next time,

the only good thing about the heat of summer is the increased activity at the bird bath. :)

Bird bath photos are always such a flurry of fun!

I was just thinking how much your photos have improved in the past year - much more clear and showing lots of action - so I have no insight as to how to improve the graininess! I think they are great!

I love that you could capture the water drops, that's so cool:@)

I love your bird bath! I can see why they want to come and hang out. Birds in action are very difficult to shoot, but you got some great ones here.

As far as graininess, shooting on the lowest ISO possible depending on available light might help. If you have really bright light you can probably do 100 or 200 iso. But I think these are wonderful!

I think these are great -- I never get much action at the birdbaths, not sure why.

Are you cropping your photos? I generally try to shoot in large format, so if I crop, the photos are still fairly sharp. Just a thought.

Great photos - I especially love the splashing in the birdbath. :)
Hope you have a great weekend!
