At the end of the day
Another Chickadee (or could it be the same one??) from my short walk today, seen against the sunset. This photo got to #115 on 5th January 2007.
.... or this one?
It is so rare for me to get a photo with a plain, blurry background, but it sure feels good when it does happen! Yes, I think this shot is a bit better balanced, too. The highest this photo got in Explore was #294 on 7th January 2007.
You can count on me!
Yes, I know that if there is nothing else around, you will always find a bunch of Chickadees. Saw this one on my outing today. After tomorrow, perhaps my photos will have a look of winter about them - my daughter said that the forecast is for 3 cm of the white stuff. Not much, just enough to make everywhere look fresh and clean, and to cause bad driving conditions. The highest this photo got in Explore was #306 on 10th January 2007.
If I just sit and wait...
For some strange reason, the Chickadees were easier to photograph this afternoon. A female White-tailed Deer and her two young ones were hanging around nearby, feeding amongst the bushes. Happy Feathery Friday, everyone! The highest this photo got in Explore was #29 on 14th January 2007.
Another peaceful little bird. The highest this photo got in Explore was #287 on 14th January 2007.
I was thrilled to bits this afternoon in Weaselhead when a couple of Gray Jays flew down to the bushes near where I was standing. These made my day! The highest this photo got in Explore was #141 on 16th January 2007.
Hey, look at me!
This little Chickadee lives in a grove of spruce trees in one of the local parks. Its neighbours include Ruffed Grouse, Great Horned Owls, Gray Jays and a Pileated Woodpecker to name but a few. The highest this photo got in Explore was #225 on 18th January 2007.
Got another chance to see a few Redpolls this afternoon when I called in at a second natural area. After uploading this photo, it suddenly struck me that maybe this is a Hoary Redpoll, not a Common Redpoll, because of its lighter coloring. I would love it if someone could confirm or correct for me! The highest this photo has been in Explore is #110 on 22nd January 2007.
