Those are great shots! I think I am starting to like birds, the little ones, the big ones still scare me. I like it when they are still, the flying thing and swooping down thing and when they land on me makes me uncomfortable. But watching them from behind glass is totally do-able. Maybe we should get a feeder?
You could also just hang a few suet blocks. I buy from these folks: http://pinetreefarmsinc.com/newsite/ They're good people, I trust their products, and I like to support upstate businesses. Lord knows, there aren't many employment opportunities in Interlaken, and they've provided jobs for a number of the locals by starting this business.
Thanks Chris. I can't get them as crisp as I would like, and the angle is limited shooting through my office window, but without a decent zoom...You're right, the Jays are particularly wary. The suckers watch me at my desk while they feed on the suet and if I even look like I'm getting up...gone! I only caught that one because he was down below the window on the seed block and I crept up on him.
While enjoying my coffee this morning, I had four bluebirds feeding at my flowering crabapple tree outside my living room window at the same time! Of course, as soon as I picked up the camera...it would have been a lousy shot anyway. But, now that I know they're around...
