The birds of the North shore are fun to photograph and just an excuse to take pictures of the lake and the rocks. I think I took this one in 2012 and am looking forward to taking more in 2015.
I put out a bird house every year and usually a family of finches moves in but this year some chickadees took it over.
Every year I put a bird house on the front porch and every year I complain because the birds wake me up so early. This year I put it on the back porch. The birds are right outside my office. It is kind of a distraction but I don’t mind.
There is a robins nest right outside my front door and a finches nest in the bird house hanging on the back porch. I used to hang the bird house on the front porch and then complain about the birds waking me up at 4:00. It took me a few years to figure out what I was doing wrong.
It is fun to shoot the sea gulls. Photographing this one was just an excise to photograph lake superior, the rocks and some yellow tansy that was blooming.
I never saw a blue bird up close until last spring and the first thing I did before even saying hello was to shoot it. I love photographs of birds and I want to take more but I have a hard time finding a place to shoot them especially this time of year.
