Bird Week!

No memes this week, its all about going to the birds. Armed with my Nikon D7000 and my old venerable Sigma 175-500mm Tele lens I stalked the bird feeders at the Anita Purvis Nature Center in Urbana Illinois last Wednesday and got some pretty good shots, well at least enough for a weeks worth of posts. 😉

So without further adoo here are the first pics. I tried to get the birds in the surrounding trees for better effect. For today we have a female cardinal, a nuthatch and an unidentified little brown bird that was the size of a sparrow.

  1. Love the startled look and punk hair of the cardinal. The brown bird looks a bit like a Carolina Wren, but I defer to others for a more definitive identification.
