What is it about birds?

My favorite subjects for photography are people, dogs, landscapes, but most of all birds. Birds are a big attraction for me. Observing their behaviors and the expressions on their faces brings me much joy! It can be below freezing according to the thermometer, as it was today, but just give me a woodpecker to watch (or any bird for that matter), and I forget all about the frozen feeling of my fingers and toes. Here is a slide show of the birds I met in the park today.

I ended my walk standing under the big trees by the bog, watching the antics of the yellow-bellied sapsucker. Look closely at his picture and you can see the little line of sap wells he has drilled in the tree trunk. Apparently these wells are beneficial to all sorts of critters, including hummingbirds! Birds are fascinating! After the sapsucker vanished from the scene, I headed home for a cup of hot cocoa. If you’ve been hanging out in the bog with me today, maybe you should have one too. See you again soon.

  1. I don’t have an answer to your question, but I can tell you that you are not alone! I am following you and four other bird lovers out here in blogland, and while I may not be a birder like you and the others, I nonetheless enjoy all of the hard work that you all put into the hobby,
