I'm not much of a birder. I can identify the most common birds (robins, crows, pigeons...) but many others were just birds to me. After training my camera lens on the variety I saw in the park, I felt compelled to learn more. Above is an eastern kingbird. We saw several on our walk.
I am not sure what this one is. He stopped to have a drink.
There a number of bird houses around the park. This tree swallow was checking things out from the safety of his home.
while this one was flitting from tree to tree.
A barn swallow was enjoying the sunshine. It was chirping away on this tree branch.
Another eastern kingbird did not want to pose. When it stopped to groom a bit, I managed to take its picture.
It takes patience to photograph birds. It's another part of the zen experience of walking through nature. Stop, wait, focus, snap and then try again and again.
