Sing Little Bird

At the little house in the big woods, we are lucky to have birds year round. However, in the spring, we have even more, and the trees are a aflutter with the little beauties. In addition, they sing to attract mates and to establish territory. This means the backyard in spring is an audio delight as well as a visual one.

Needless to say, the birds don’t pose for me so that I can take their pictures. As I sit on the patio, I have camera in hand, waiting, waiting for a good shot. Because the birds are always on the move, I take a lot of bad photos of them, but occasionally I get a relatively good one in the mix.

Here is one of a purple finch, caught in the act of vocalizing.

Sing, little bird. Sing. Spring is here.
