We get a lot of different birds in our backyard and I’ve been having fun watching them. I’ve just bought a fancy new lens that I’m hoping will improve my photographs of these delightful creatures. I’ll add what I’ve seen so far and try and note my lens and specs. This is not a list of all the birds I’ve seen, just the ones I’ve taken snaps of in the past week. I don’t have pictures of everything yet, but I’ll make that my goal this summer. Hopefully in a few months my skill will improve too. 🙂 If I’m wrong on my ID, please do let me know!
