Back to birds

Some of the wildlife spotted in my yard recently.

Dark-eyed Junco
Oregon Junco



Merlin (Falco columbarius), rarest bird I’ve seen here
Magic anti-gravity bird

The last one is a bit of fun: I just happened to snap the shutter when the bird’s wings were in, making it appear to hover above the branches. I haven’t been able to get a clear shot of this one yet to identify it: always too far and in bad light to get decent colour. There are two of them that like to visit this particular pine tree.

Maybe one day the sun will shine when I’m out with the Nikon and these birds will be properly lit.
