As far as Spring birds go, I’ve seen and heard a male Cardinal breaking out in a mating song, a flock of Robins and Cowbirds, Starlings, and most recently, a male Red-Winged Blackbird. Was I able to capture any of these birds besides the Starlings? That would be a negative. Every time I saw or heard these birds, I did not have my camera. Figures, right?
But I did capture some birds, two from a Nature Preserve I go to and from our backyard. First up:
Male Downy Woodpecker
Female Downy Woodpecker
These two birds were nowhere near one another. Because they are so small, I didn’t realize they were a male and female respectively until I examined these images in my editing room. I couldn’t help but ask myself if these two birds are mates or if they are mates of other Downy Woodpeckers. To capture both a male and a female on the same day I thought to be very fortuitous.
We seem to have attracted some new-comers to our backyard. Crows. And yes I did the research to determine if these are crows or ravens. To the best of my knowledge, they are crows.

Oh-oh I got caught taking pictures. The glare!
And now for a few landscapes in which the sky held remarkable cloud formations. Observe how I attempted to merge the landscape with the skyscape to create one seamless image. I call it making art.
The lone Evergreen caught my eye. I lined it up with the cloud formations.
The icy barrenness I found to be exceptionally moving.
There is a lot of the white stuff in our forecast, so that being said, I’m not sure when I will be able to continue to go hunting for Spring birds. Let us all hope Father Winter has just this one last blow out before Sister Spring glides gracefully in to stay around for a while. May all of you have a really good day. Thank you so much for stopping by to view my post today.
