Passerin Indigo – Indigo Bunting

Rose-Breasted Grosbeak - Cardinal à Poitrine Rose

On dirait que je suis devenu photographe d’oiseaux uniquement…quand les sujets sont si beaux et nombreux on ne se plaint pas!

It would seem I’ve become a bird photographer, but when the subjects are so beautiful and plentiful who could complain!

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird

Little hummer, under the feeder, tired from from all that humming, I think I’ll name him Humzalot! 😉

Flycatcher

Moucherolle Tchébec. Je préfère de loin le nom de cet oiseau en Français. En Anglais il se nomme ‘least flycatcher’ – ‘least’ = ‘moindre’, inacceptable!

Between Two Storm Clouds…

Yellow-Rumped Warbler

We had time to go for a walk on the mountain last evening, between two storm clouds.

Mont Rigaud – Birder’s Dream

Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

About a year ago, at Oka park, I spotted my first ever rose-breasted grosbeak. I was taking pictures with my macro lens when movement overhead drew my attention. Wow! With my eye on him and his on me, I fumbled for my telephoto lens, removed the macro lens, then quickly attached the long lens, brought it to my eye and watched the beautiful bird flutter off into the woods. Not a single frame fired. I sat for a while, put the camera on the tripod aimed at the spot he had perched, and I waited, hoping  he would return. He didn’t.

I have seen so many of these beautiful Grosbeaks in the past two weeks that I don’t even flinch anymore…

Friday The Thirteenth

Eastern Bluebird

It’s been about a week now that this bluebird has been making daily visits to the fence around the neighbour’s blueberry patch. Approaching him has been a challenge, to say the least, as there is no cover other than a pine tree about ten meters away. A few steps forward, ‘click’, a few more steps, ‘click’, then either he moves off to the next post or I decide I’ve come close enough. How close is too close? I try to trust my gut…
