Watch the Birdie

My main project this Spring seemed to be photographing birds. Generally I went out early morning, before the light got too harsh, and spent a pleasant hour or two photographing whatever I could find.

I think my favourite photo during this time was one where I caught a Red-winged Blackbird singing and you could “see” its breath. It wasn’t particularly chilly that morning so I assume there must have been a little bit of mist rising off the water, or perhaps just enough of a cold-air pocket that the exhaled air from the bird was visible.

“I can see my breath!”

Perhaps my second favourite was of a female Red-winged Blackbird that seemed to be singing into a microphone.
