The detail on the western bluebird is almost tangible, and the two skies at dawn are cool. Moon settings are a joy to behold.
Thanks, Mary Jo. You noticced the blurebird isn’t blue? It might be the alkaline in the soil and water out here.
Yes, figured it was a female.
As they say, it’s all in the relative bill size for the hairy (and a couple of other more obscure details.. the last two in your female set are definitely Hairies. Managed to see my first ever western bluebird while on our Vegas trip – hope my shots came out as sharp as yours.
I find them hard to tell apart. Thanks, Brian.
Now that song, ‘ I’;m just wild about Harry…’ will be in my head all day. These are fabulous pictures. The detail is tremendous
Sorry about that. I was thinking of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry”. Thanks, Shey.
Than YOu TImothy for another lovely post.
You are welcome.
Those peckers are gorgeous!
Pretty peckers paused pecking per pink predawn painting peppered Pandora perhaps Prophasis was set free. How’s that for a pathological pecker parlance? Thanks, Marina.
Brilliant pecker parlance!!!!!
I thought you might like it.
Great shots! I do love an apricot sky.
You’re welcome, Tim.
I remember taking pics of woodpeckers and then looking them up to see which one I had captured and between the downy and the hairy… they are too similar for a simpleton like me!
LOVE that bluebird… is this a female to have, like, no blue? Or is it the light?
That first sky pic with the tree is just simply stunning.
The Bluebird is a girlie bird. I can’t tell the hairies from the downies either. Stupid peckers. Thanks, Dale.
Hahahaha! Love it…
You capture the best photos, Tim, love these! 😍
Resa’s tree looks beautiful in that dawn photo, and that is a very nice bluebird portrait. What camera did you use for that one? The textural detail captured, especially the feathers, is striking.
We see woodpeckers here, not as many as the flickers.
Besides the hairies and downies, the only other woodpeckers I see out here are the flickers. Thanks, Lavinia.
I used the Canon 7D Mark II with the Bazooka lens. That’s my primary bird setup.
I thought it might be the bazooka lens.
gorgeous pics but the blue bird looks blackish and white
Female bluebird. More orange and gray. Not a touch of blue on her. Thanks, Cindy.
That’s so wild Tim! Sweet thing. 💞
What beautiful birds!!! And that last moon set photo…wow! 💖🌕💙
Thanks, Samantha. I’m happy you liked the birds and setting moon.
The bare tree branches are beautiful again the colour full skies.
I love the lacy trees in winter. They are so beautiful against the sky. Thanks, Rebecca.
I do too, Tim.
The moon setting at dawn is my favorite here. I always am fascinated by the moon still around in a morning sky.
Great shots, Tim! The birds are beautiful, and my tree is stunning. (Stole it!)xx
Thanks, Resa. Your tree has been lovely lately.
It really is a beauty!
