Last week I decided it was time again to take my camera on our walk. I hoped to see some birds that I hadn't shown you in a while.
I always like to see the phoebe, always dapper with his cutaway coat. He makes short forays off of his perch to catch an insect on the fly.
The Western bluebird hunts in a similar manner. He posed, showing me the beautiful colors on his back.
Then he darted off, after an insect on the fly.
The killdeer was hiding in plain sight. He was away from the path and so still that I almost didn't see him.
I've been trying for years to get the ring necked pheasant in my lens. As usual he ran off into the brush as soon as I spotted him. This is my best attempt yet. They are common around here but they tease me, jumping up to flap their wings and call then dropping down into the brush before I can get a shot.
