Out back behind the barn, on an old fence pole and above the scrap pile is a blue bird house. I placed it there when we first moved here.
Dependably every year there will be a nest of babies. I always know when they are being fed because of the chorus of chirping they make. And every year I can depend on them being much quicker than me when I try to capture them in the act.
Today as I fed and watered all the animals the little fellow came and did his feeding while I was very near! Without my camera of course.
And so it is that I took this picture from the dining room window and blew this cropped bit up so we can at least see the babies. It was a long distance (150 ft) and therefore blurry, but I’m just happy to have finally got one.
Maybe next year I will have a bird blind up and can stand right outside the barn door for a really great shot?
