Black and White Photography

Black and White Photography, Hummingbird, Photography

The Department of Natural Resources released a statement recently about a yet undetermined cause of disease that is causing sickness and the death of many songbirds across several states, including Indiana. They have also included robins, blue jays, cardinals, and starlings in their request. They have asked everyone to not feed birds and remove feeders and birdbaths after cleaning with 10% bleach water to help prevent the spread of the disease. They have also requested that this be done with hummingbird feeders also. I was worried that the hummingbirds might not return next year as they always seem to ‘demand’ their feeders and let you know for sure if it is empty. However; it is not the feeder they are returning to, but their territory. We have taken ours down as requested. The birds are still coming to the flowers and granted are looking around for their easy handouts. But they also still look healthy, which is a win. You can find out more by checking your state Department of Natural Resources.

Happy birding and thank you for visiting. ~ terre

Bird Photography, Mallard, male

Mallards are thought to be the most abundant species of duck in the world and one of the most readily recognized. They are closely related to the domestic white duck and can interbreed with domestic ducks. They can also breed with wild species, producing many different varieties of different appearances. ~

Photography ~ Earth Day

 

Nature Photography, American Robin

There is nothing like the singing of the robins to herald the return of Spring. They also are just one small, but important reminder that we are all creatures of this great planet, we call earth. Whether it is through recycling, picking up litter, carrying out our own litter so not to leave a footprint when hiking, feeding the birds, or by planting a tree; there is always something we can do to protect our earth home. Hopefully, we can all do our part so that our children, grandchildren, and all future people can enjoy what we enjoy. Happy Earth Day. ~

Photography, Birds, American Goldfinch, non-breeding male

This American Goldfinch in the snow has found a seed which makes his beak look like he got botox or something. His nonbreeding plumage is just starting to change into his yellow. By late Spring he should have all his bright yellow flashy breeding clothes. He will be styling for sure.
