So I have been photographing birds lately. I have put a few feeders around the yard and have been constantly frustrated as I attempt to get some decent shots.

As usual Oshie could not care less about the birds and always saunters over and scares them away right as I have the perfect shot lined up. He did this the other morning when I was about to take the closest shot I have managed to date of
a red shouldered hawk. I was bummed but he will be back.

Anyway, it is fun and gets me outside and practicing with the camera and there is not much more I could ask for.

Here are two shots of an Eastern Blue Bird I took through our decks sliding glass door. If the glass wasn’t there and the light was a bit better I think they would have come out much sharper.
