Just before the holiday, Mr. Lime built a standing bird feeder for our backyard. Over the holiday I had some extra time to play with Boom-boom and the big lens to see if I could capture any birds. Here are my fledgling attempts. First up is a Blue Jay.
Here's a Dark-eyed Junco. I had to look up the name of this bird. Even though it's the most prevalent one at the feeder I had no idea what it was.
I've seen other varieties of woodpecker in the neighborhood but the Red-bellied Woodpecker seems to like the feeder as much as it likes trees.
I kept trying to catch the male cardinals that frequent the feeder but they seem shyer than the females.
Pretty girl was singing here.
Here she is again, happy to pose along with the Junco chilling out in the background.
