Garden Birds. Header Challenge.

Well I've been taking a little blogging siesta while I completed my university dissertation but I've been encouraged by my family and headbanger friends to start blogging again so here I am back at the computer and back out with the camera, now that I've finished the dissertation and it is all handed in. Well the first one the course I am doing requires two so I have another one to do before I finish in the summer.

This weeks theme was therefore given to me to choose. As it was the big garden Birdwatch in the UK recently I decided what better than to go for "garden birds" it would also give me a chance to test out my new lens that I got the 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM from Sigma.

First I put some food out for the birds some apple for the blackbirds this one seems a greedy one and is taking a couple of pieces at once.

Some fat balls for the Blue tits.

Seed for the Chaffinches

Even the Robin showed up for some seed.

I was trying to get some of the birds actually in flight coming into the feeders which proved trickier than I hoped but I did get a couple of shots.

The header shows a full house on one of the feeders, they were and still are seemingly very hungry birds.

Have a look to see what the other headbangers have devised for their take on "garden birds" just follow their link in my right hand menu bar.

You can't beat the thrill of using a new lens. And you've got some good shots here Dave. Alas the verification word this week is boring. Has Blogger got no taste!

How wonderful! I just love the little blue fellow. During our snow and freeze I put out some feeders (the rest of the time I figure that there is an abundance of foods for them to find) and boy the feeders sure do concentrate the population don't they?!
