From Our Kitchen Window

 

My husband built two new feeders for the birds in the backyard recently.  One is a tray feeder and the other is a pole to hang the cage type feeder and a suet cage.   I wanted to bring the birds closer so that I could capture them at a closer range.  Of course they are taken through the window so that does make a difference to the quality of the shot.

Birds are so entertaining and I never get tired of watching them.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.   See you there.   Hope you have a wonderful week.   Valerie

Wonderful photos, you have mostly the same birds that I see at my feeders. It is nice to take pic's of the birds thru the window, they do not spook as easily.

Hi Val
We had the same thought this week! Feeders close to the house do make for good shots, enjoyed yours. Have you considered framing any yourself?

Your collage of the birds feeding at your kitchen window is so beautiful. Different birds, different shots, but the same wonderful quality of your photos. This is such a pretty collage. Great work. I have enjoyed viewing it so much.

I would love a better tray or platform feeder for the larger birds that the squirrels wouldn't decimate. I love feeding at watching the birds also.

Valerie,

I miss seeing the birds near the window. When I used to have the feeders out the kitchen window, I rarely took any pictures. Nice post.

Great mosaics, I don't think we get any of those birds here in the UK in our gardens. Thank you for sharing.

I love watching the robin, blue tits and blackbirds from my kitchen window. Jackie in Surrey, UK.
