Pretty Bird

This male Northern Cardinal hopped on top of the bird feeder, and just stopped to pose in the sunlight on January 18, 2013.

Snow Robins

These 2 images of Robins in the snow are not all that uncommon.  But considering these were taken on January 17th, 2013, is quite a bit different.  In the past, I’ve always looked forward to the day when I see my first robin of the new year, which is usually in March, but sometimes even in February.  Seeing them in mid-January is quite unusual.  A few days later, I had seen close to 30 at different places around here.  I wonder if they didn’t fly far enough south, or if they came back north too early.  Hard to tell.

Cedar Waxwings

I love these birds.  I’ve often taken photos of these birds, but rarely have I had such good results.  We had about 30 of them at our house on a Saturday (January 12, 2013), and the weather was beautiful also.  Oh, and I was home for a change too.  Here are 3 of about 25 great images that I captured.  Let me know what you think.

Red-Tailed Hawk

Robin in the Bath

I had to sneak to get this photo, and I used a long lens to capture the image.  Hannah and I were on a mission to capture the first robin image of the year, and after getting some okay images earlier of some distant ones, this particular robin didn’t fly away as we drove right up close to it.  And the coolest thing of all was that it even stayed there and took a bath.  So cool.  This was taken on March 3, 2012 at Bissett Park in Radford, Virginia.  I saw my earliest robin ever this year (that I can remember) on February 15.
