Pine Warbler, Purple Finch, White-breasted Nuthatch, Eastern Bluebird, Red-breasted Nuthatch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA, April 2023 — We are having several days of cold rain here in a row, but the birds have been very active at the feeders despite the weather. I had fun yesterday afternoon when the light was at its brightest for the day, photographing wet birds through the double-glazed deck door. I can’t say that they look very happy! but they were certainly busy. Olympus OM-1 with the 100-400mm zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my evolving birds and wildlife modifications.

Yellow-footed Green Pigeon: Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India, March 2023 — My rickshaw driver could be very insistent when he spotted a bird (or birds) that he thought I should photograph. These two Yellow-footed Green Pigeons were sitting right over the road at Keoladeo, and he stopped and jockeyed the rickshaw around for a good angle. I have to admit they were picture worthy, despite being one of the most common birds of Rajasthan. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
