Worth the Wait

All good things come to those that wait. Seems that Sunshine has mastered the art of sitting still as a statue under the bird feeder waiting for our feathered friends. Surely I could take lessons from her as while waiting for the birds to come in, I fidget. […]

A Morning with the Birds

I was out early with the bunnies and birds last week. A small park just outside of Baltimore named Cromwell Valley ParkĀ is for some reason is a magical spot for migrating warblers in the fall. A small stretch within a tree canopy next to a dry stream is […]

Finally some little birdies

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to get some lovely bird images. Not birding as much and waiting for the fall migration to begin, things have been a bit slow. It doesn’t help that the few warblers that are buzzing around have been far and elusive. […]

A Few Little Yard Birds

This afternoon I set up a new wildlife photographer blind in my driveway to stalk my yard birds. It really made them laugh. When I returned home I had seen a hummingbird in the garden, so I quickly refilled all the feeders and pulled out the Hummingbird feeder […]
