More Birds for January

Late afternoon yesterday (Sunday) I took a few photos of birds on the electrical wire behind our house and in a distant tree. Always something to try and capture.

How better to keep warm than to ruffle one's feathers. Maybe that is what minor spats are for in human relationships. Nah, I don't' think so!

On Friday morning (Jan. 25) I was out on the deck (Harrisonburg, VA, USA) taking some more photos of birds at the feeders and in the trees nearby. I wanted to see if I could stay long enough that being this close would not spook them. Lo and behold, when I worked on the photos on my computer, I discovered that I had a bird I don't believe I had captured previously.

But I'm still having difficulty trying to focus on the birds sitting in the midst of tree limbs.
