B Is For Birds

Today the letter B is for birds because I enjoy photographing and drawing these wonderful creatures.

 

Birds are one of my favorite things to photograph, and here is a video I also took of the same bird above. I wish I could identify this bird, but I am going to have to keep searching to try and find its species. Update: someone commenting below tells me the bird is probably the black phoebe, and it does look quite like it.

Here are a few more pictures I have captured of these wonderful creatures over the years.

The photo of the bird above is of a crow flying aloft up in the San Bernardino Mountains.  I enjoy taking photos of birds as they are in flight. Update: the bird might be a turkey buzzard, of which I know a few visit the San Bernardino Mountains.

Above are two photographs I took of chickadees eating bird seed up in the San Bernardino Mountains. One of my fond memories as a child was putting out bird seed during the winter months and watching all of our feathered friends (usually the chickadees) congregate with socialize and eat. These photographs of birds bring back memories, and every time I see a chickadee, I remember how I used to feed them as a child. What is your favorite bird to photograph?
