Chromium's Backyard Bird Project
Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Start of My Adventure
Turns out it was basic flight training day for all the kids today.
Well of course I didn't have my camera with me.....but an idea came to me. This backyard would be a perfect bird photography location and my new project was born.
This corner of the yard has an Apple,Cherry,and Pair trees. Unfortunatly the Cherry tree is dying and we need to take it down soon =(
Moving along we have the part of the lawn that has been the bain of my existence since I was about 10 years old....There are actual fences behind the Ivy farm there and I've battling it for some time.
Soon the Morning Glory will cover most of that Ivy and bloom through the Fall provided I don't get motivated on removal this year.
Lastly we have the south side. To the far left you can see part of the patio and the Plum tree on the SouthWest corner of the house.
The yard gets a good amount of birds as is due to the fruit trees and the number of insects and worms here but I want to draw them to certain areas that are the most photofriendly and start bringing in more Hummingbirds.
The Robins are here throughout the day hunting bugs and waiting for the Cherries to ripen.
This one has a green caterpillar and about 4 spiders in it's mouth already and must be taking it all back to it's nest for the little ones.
Time to head back to the brood, those kids aren't going to feed themselves....YET <,<
We are also hip deep in Sparrows here and there are at least 3 different families of them nesting in varios places in the greenry.
This one here has also found a green caterpillar and is looking to add to it's booty before returning to the nest.
Seems like a bad day for little green caterpillars O.o
Got this one just before lift off =)
Now to make the yard even more Bird friendly !!!
First I dropped a brick of suet into the cadge feeder and hung it in the plum tree and then went back to fill the Hummingbird feeder.
There are Sparrows hitting up the suet feeder before I even get the Hummingbird feeder filled
Now I just need to set up my spots to shoot from and I should start getting some good bird shots.
and the rest of the gang at #featheredfrinds for all your feathered odds and ends.
