Sunday Stills: Watch out for Birds

Birds are my least favorite subject to photograph mostly because I’m terrible at it and not very patient. And all the birds around her are either black or brown, not like the gorgeous creatures in Terri’s backyard.

I found these guys lined up in the front of the church waiting for it to start. ๐Ÿ™‚

These vultures were waiting to snatch up my rescue kittens. Hahaha They were foiled again!

If you want to participate in Terri’s wonderful bird land photo challenge, below is the start of her post. You can read the rest by clicking on the Continue button at the bottom of the page.

Don’t forget to turn in your entries to the Carrot Ranch Rodeo #3 Contest. All due by tomorrow at 12:00 am PDT.

Sunday Stills: Kinda Backyard #Birding


This weekโ€™s Sunday Stillsโ€™ post is partially inspired by Lisaโ€™s Weekly Bird Challenge. What kinda birds live or visit in your backyard?

As you read in my post last week, I have enjoyed my backyard as a happy place. Not a huge backyard, but it does the job with the 5 redwood trees I planted which attract a variety of birds. The sunflower seeds and various bird feeders also attract a nice variety of birds and offer a treat to boot!

The Backyard Hums

My hummingbird feeders sing their sweet siren call to the local hummers who nest here most of the year and offer a syrupy sip.

  2. The turkeys are kinda funny lined up in front of the church, Marsha! Perhaps they are praying for a canceled Thanksgiving! Glad you had eagle-eyes and moved your itty-bitties in from the vulture hang-out! Great shots, timing is everything! Thanks for the shout-out, too!

    • Hahaha. Their heads are bowed, so maybe. They are such a funny bunch of critters. Puppy girl is afraid of them. I was just going to reblog your post, but my reblogger button didn’t work, so I had to do it the long way. Then I got into the post and before I knew it I had a short post. I’m so addicted – even when I don’t have time!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
