We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Our tiny Yankee pal is around in both summer and winter. Often, in winter, he is the only bird you will encounter in the woods, searching for bug larvae in bark and rotten wood. You can read about our Chickadee here at CLO. Their springtime song - pheee-beeee - is a sweet delight. Photo by Gwynnie, yesterday:
What a fantastic picture. I love being able to see the seed in the mouth! What camera? I can't ever get good pictures of birds because I am not good at sitting still and I don't have a telefoto. But hat's off to you.
Off to the shore ( Mom's boot camp for teenager, me carrying camera in hopes of getting shots of waterfowl...)
Husband has that. But only good if you use it! I use a canon g7 10mp [glorified point and shoot] but am better at landscapes, sleepy pets, and flowers than wild things and people. The latter [in my household]aren't photogenic, and I can't figure out the camera I have, let alone a faster one to get better wild pix. Read the manual,read the manual! But well done, done G, I admire those with greater skill!
