Bird Feeder Moments


With the birds flocking to the feeders sometimes it’s possible to catch some interesting action shots.
White-breasted Nuthatches will occasionally display aggressive behavior upon their approach to a busy feeder. Fluffing their feathers and spreading their wings they attempt to drive other birds away. The aggressive behavior only last for a second or two. I seldom have time to focus, compose, and fire. To date this is my best shot

A Tufted Titmouse perched on the tree directly above a naturalized feeder decided to descend at the very moment I clicked the shutter. Capturing the bird’s free-fall was more luck than skill.
