This photograph was taken a few weeks ago. We had a flock of turkeys come through the property and they spent the whole day foraging and preening themselves.

I took this photograph this afternoon. It was a sunny and blustery day here in Maine. This is one of several black-capped chickadees perching in a maple tree. The birds were brave enough to be out in this weather and it was business as usual in the avian world.

Here is a photograph of an American goldfinch perching on a dried sunflower plant. These birds haven't been around lately. They seem to come and go during this time of year. I suppose they will be back eventually.

I'm not certain I responded in the proper place. I'm new to this site. All of your bird photos are tremendous. What is really amazing is, as anyone who has attepted to shoot tiny birds will agree with is they are incredibly hard to shoot.
They sit on a branch, tremble, twitch, jerk around, plus they have extraordinary high metabolism. They refuse to sit still. When using a tripod it is even more difficult, even at super high speed. Great job on all the photos of wee birds.

Hello Herb,

Thank you for your kind words regarding my photography. I have enjoyed viewing your splendid photography as well. I suppose working with wildlife requires a great deal of time and patience. I find the pursuit of the perfect photograph may take a lifetime, but in the meantime, I will enjoy my time learning all there is to know about photography. I look forward to seeing more of your work here on the forum!
