I'm So Excited!

"And I just can't hide it..."

Last winter, I spent HOURS bundled up on my (unheated) screened-in back porch, digiscoping birds at my bird feeders. I got dozens of images, including a few I was pretty proud of. But, at that time, my ancient computer wouldn't talk to my new digital camera, so I couldn't upload any of the photos. I saved them on a CD. (Which my old 'puter also couldn't read.)

When I got this new computer, I couldn't find the C
D's with all my stored photos. I was so bummed.

Then, this weekend - I found them!!! (Isn't it amazing what you can find when you clean off your messy desk?)

Finally, I have gobs of bird photos to share with you. Maybe I can finally live up to my goal of being (at least in part) a birding blog.

To start you off, here's a small taste - American Goldfinches in winter.

I love them in their winter colors almost more than summer yellow!
Nice photos!

I'm with Nina- I like the muted colors. Nice photo!

Nice photo of cute birds, the Washington state bird. This morning when I was putting more seed out for the birds, I heard a male robin singing. With 3 inches of snow on the ground here, I'm thinking he would rather be vacationing in Arizona.

What a gorgeous picture. It almost doesn't look real. You really do bird, don't you? ;)

Well, lookie there! Birds on Kathi's college football, what-can-kill-your-pet blog! Who da thunk?

Are you like a birder or something?

Yay! I'm jealous of that photo, Kathi. Let's see more!
