bird nerd

I told someone I'm a bird nerd. I totally am. And I've been on this photo kick lately. The telephoto lens likes to see some action every now and then!

So these are some random pics from the last week that I keep forgetting to post. All photographs taken with Nikon D80 and Tamron 200-400mm lens (all shot at 400mm I'm sure!).

This is from when I went to the Cosumnes Preserve last week, for some reason I forgot to upload it then. Northern Shovelers:

Western Bluebird (male) in the foreground and a Yellow-Rumped Warbler in the background on the front fence. Photographed through the window:

Nuttall's Woodpecker (male). Photographed through the window:

American Goldfinch (male in nonbreeding plumage). Photographed through the window:

When you say photographed through the window, does that mean the window of your car or through your studio window? Just wondering. You know, I never did see a single bluebird or goldfinch in the whole time I was in CA. Isn't that wild!?! -BM

That would be the house window. Come on, you know these are taken in the front yard! I don't drive in the yard! ;-)
