Backyard Birds

There are few flowers, fewer insects, but there are still birds in my garden!  I feed them during the winter when there is less natural food around.  All of these shots were taken in the last few days, using a 70-200mm lens and tripod.

    I am always amazed at the variety of little birds in a garden – when there are neighbours cats around!

  2. You have a very ‘colorful’ garden. I don’t think I’d get anything done…just bird watching.

  3. I love the little guy in the bird bath. What are the parrot type birds in the last few pictures? Reminds me of Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

    • The one in the birdbath is a female blackbird, while the other colourful ones are Crimson Rosellas, even the green ones which are not yet mature adults.

    Beautiful – the colors of the birds is amazing! Makes me want to go bird watching – with my camera of course!
