Nature Through My Lens


Through the Bluebells

Here’s another American Robin.

Today, it’s snowing again! This forlorne Robin (Turdus migratorius) was sitting in the Japanese Maple tree in our front yard. It really did look quite lost, sitting there giving off the occasional tweet. Maybe got home a little soon!

Love These Berries

The neighbours have a bush that was dying, so they cut all the branches off about 4 feet from the ground. The birds really like to sit on the branches. I now have several shot of different birds on the same branch.
Here’s a Robin, of course.

Chick Update

We had a bit of a disaster yesterday, with the Robin’s nest. The parents were causing quite a commotion, so I went to check things out. Here the three chicks were on the ground, Mum & Dad were quite frantic.
I managed to pick up the chicks and get them back into the nest.
I got this shot this morning and Mum was near with a gob full of worms! So, they are still feeding the chicks. I don’t know how many there are now. Hopefully still three. I’m giving them some distance, but I think they will be fledging quite soon, or maybe already have except for this one. Time will tell.

Ma, you’re sitting on me!
