Spring Birding

Birds on a Tree

A series of storms came through today and yesterday and conditions were right to have grounded a lot of migrating birds, so I went out to the local nature preserve to see if I could get any pictures. The birds were there but I had a rough time getting any good shots. I'd love to blame the birds but I think it is the photographer's fault. I have shots of bird bellies, bird butts, blurred birds and absent birds that jumped out of the picture just as the shutter snapped.

If you're a birder, you should come visit us Down Under. I'm in love with the antipodean birds.
