Spring Birds

21 Apr

When I’ve been in pasture this past week, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for morel mushrooms.  I haven’t found any, but I swear I’m probably looking up when I should be looking down.  I dont’ want to miss any birds either.

I’m pretty sure I’ve missed a lot of great birds.  I’ve seen a male pheasant hanging around, but I never have my camera when I’m close enough to get a passable shot.

Sharing with Wild Bird Wednesday.

    I would love to get a pheasant! Have not had one good picture opportunity today!

      I must have heavy steps this spring because I can’t get close to any of these birds for good shots.

      It is wonderful out there. I wouldn’t trade my walks for anything.

    Particularly love the robin with green buds on the branch above, nice work on all of them!

      Thanks, but it must not be a very good picture since it’s a bluebird.

        I have no doubt it is due to my identification skills (or lack thereof). My apologies.

      • Teresa April 21, 2015 at 9:10 pm #

        No worries. I can’t get the bluebirds to sit still for me to get very close.

      Thanks. I liked it sitting on the old corn.

      Thanks, Eileen. I’ve seen quite a few bluebirds this year.

    Neat silhouette. Yep, it’s not easy looking up, down and straight ahead all at the same time!

    • Teresa April 22, 2015 at 8:19 pm #

      It’s a miracle I don’t trip and fall more than I do. LOL

    Wonderful bird shots! I was busy the other day showing my daughter the new shoot on my Bird of Paradise and a big lizard dashed out from practically beneath my feet. I squealed….scared him as much as he scared me! 🙂 Looking down is always a good idea. 🙂 But looking up we find so many wonderful bird treasures.

      Amazing things to see all around us!

    Lovely shots, so many birds! LOVE the first silhouette!

    • Teresa April 22, 2015 at 8:20 pm #

      Thanks. This is the best time of year for bird shots (at least for me).

    That first shot is awesome!! It would make a great card! 🙂

    All of the photos are great!! – Whenever we see a western bluebird here in Oregon, they’re always moving so fast that we hardly see more than a blue blur!!
