As usual…I’m sitting in my office, doing something on my computer. In the corner of my eye, I spy some activity at the bird bath.
I get my camera, my 24-105mm lens is currently on. I start snapping away at the birds, they are white with black markings and small. They look like they are having fun playing in the water, and soon the 2 turn to 4. They appear to be chickadees. I realize I need to get a longer lens and get my 100-400mm. Since I’m shooting through the window, I have to stay away from the window mullions shadows. Soon a new friend has arrived, it looks like a creeper. I don’t know these birds off the top of my head I have looked them up in my husbands Eastern Birds handbook.
Ms. Cardinal arrives, but, she is happy on the ground. I’m thinking, I’ll add bird seed to the birdbath to attract more activity.
Well, that was a mistake! All I got was a greedy squirrel.
