Once again this winter the Forest Park irregulars, a devoted group of birders who spend far too much time in Forest Park, are maintaining two feeding stations. Seeing as it is a sunny day and Daisy agreed to let me go outside for a bit, I headed over to the waterhole, which serves as one of the feeding stations, this morning to see what I could see. Though it was sunny it was also cold, very cold, and the birds responded to the drop in temperature with a corresponding increase in feeding. There was a never ending stream of species feeding both in the suet strategically smeared on a some tree trunks and on the seed scattered about on the ground.
It was great to see such nice birds in such strong light for my first attempt at digiscoping with my brand spankin’ new Canon EOS 50D (more on that in a later post). Let’s just go to the pictures because, really, no one cares what I write when there are shots like these!
