I need your help in identify birds.
You must get the same birds species as I do.
We have at least fifty Cardinals everyday.
I could shot(take pictures) of these beautiful birds all day but when you have this many you become used to them.
Bluebird, Cheated- took last summer
I's funny watching the Crows trying to get the same hotdog as the Hawk. They will sneak up grab it and run away. Used to chase Hawk away from feeder but they have to live too.
Some more of our daily visitors.
Anyone know species
Don't know if it's two adults or sibling with adult.
Thanks for identifying. The Coopers look very similar.
Shot in Marietta Ga. next to Kennesaw Mountain national Park.
We get many different species of birds. Some migrating & many living here year round like the beautiful Cardinals & Bluebirds pictured.
I know the shadow on the two hawks detracts but it's the first time I was able to shot a pic of both.
The Hawk & Squirrel staring at each other was cute.
Hawk on the ground was eating hotdogs that we feed our Crows.
First time catching both together
Watch you lookin at?
Staring me down
It looks like you have many squirrels.
We take them for granted but they are interesting to watch.
I need to to take some shots of them too. A few are almost tame.
We have many many Cardinals coming to our feeders & only one Bluebird. I get destracted in my office watching these little beauties. These photos were taken from my desk.
Pic's would have been better but I had to crop alot. Included are two of the blooming Dogwoods here in Marietta Ga.
Got lucky with sunlight
We have a least a hundred of these beauties visitig daily
The only Bluebird I've seen
Early blooming Dogwoods
House Finch in blooming Dogwoods
Yes, that's what made the shot look even better. It was cold that morning,In the thirties. for the south that's cold.
Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?
This Coopers Hawk comes down & eats table scraps we put out for the crows.
we used to scare it away but now understand that hawks gotta eat too. they have a tough time finding food. Our birds have become pets but we have so many, my wife wont miss one ot two.
This big critter keeps watch over our bird feeders.
Hawks are easy to photograph. This one will stay in same spot for over ten minutes.
They are not timid. The adults grow to the size of a large chicken. In the past we would try to shoo it away but until you were very close it would just stare at me. When i hear a large bang on our large windows I know it's around. To escape their prey birds will fly into window thinking it's an escape route. Thanks for helping with description.
I am very new to birding as well.
These are very good photo's.
I have learned so much in the last few months.
This hummer shot needs flash. I was not prepared but still not a bad photo. It's fun watching baby Cardinals. They line up at dusk to feed. This creates a traffic jam. Our cat Missy is on guard duty. Thanks for all who helped me. Still a lot to learn but I get excited when I get a good shot.
I shot this in AV mode with Canon 60D. Unfortunately the shutter speed was to fast(4000)
This created noise. The reason for post,This Baby Hawk appears to be hurt. Perching with one foot/tallon. Do they normally do that?
