Dance of the Northern Cardinal

This Northern Cardinal and Dark-eyed Junco (in the background) put on a nice show yesterday at my bird feeders. Canon 6D, Canon EF400mm f/5.6L USM lens, ISO 3200, 1/2000 sec, f/8, hand-held and taken through my kitchen window here in Weatherly, Pennsylvania.

Bird Photography – The American Robin

LSci LogoThe American Robin – nothing in Pennsylvania tells you that spring is here like the robin.  This fellow below was photographed on April 4, 2015 near my home. From information I have read, this appears to be a male.  The female has a more gray color on top and also has a white belly.

For some reason they never eat from my feeders, they prefer ground feeding.  Perhaps because the feeders are on my deck.

Taking photographs of birds really help me learn more about them, how to identify them and how awesome they are.  I can even tell what birds are around simply by listening to the songs and chirps.

This image is from a single exposure using a Canon 6D, 400mm lens equipped with a Canon 2x extender.
