Tufted Titmouse in Flight

This entry is part 5 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

This entry is part 5 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder  Wow, those Tufted Titmouse (Baelophus bicolor) are quick little guys.  I tried many shots to get one in flight and so far this is the best of the lot.  I’m not particularly happy with it – for example, the feet are a little […]

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Osbornedale State Park

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Osbornedale State Park  On a visit to Osbornedale State Park in Derby, Connecticut, I saw these Geese all lined up facing into the setting sun.  It was really odd looking at the time because they seemed so stoic and disciplined.  Immediately after this shot, a […]

Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis)

Dark-Eyed Junco in the Snow

  Last Sunday after the freak October snow storm, I photographed some birds outside around my bird feeder.  This little guy, a Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis), was kind enough to do a little posing for me.  The birds must have been famished after the storm because they were attacking the bird feeder.  All of the snow […]

Mute Swan (Cynus olor)

Mute Swan at Hammonasset Beach State Park

Early this year (I believe it was May) I took a trip to Hammonasset Beach State Park and was able to get the photo below of a Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) on one of the small ponds in the park.  I haven’t posted this yet and had honestly forgotten all about it until I was trying […]

Can you see me now?

First, I have to apologize for not posting in several days.  I decided to reorganize my office and it ended up being major “scope creep” (meaning the original goal of the project morphed into a much larger one).  I just about have it the way I want it now, but there is still a lot […]

Dark-Eyed Junco

This entry is part 4 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

This entry is part 4 of 13 in the series Birds at My BirdfeederA few weeks ago, this bird was on the ground close to the bird feeder.  I’m pretty sure it’s a Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis), but I can’t decide if it’s a male or female (I’m guessing female, but could be wrong).  He […]
