Camera Critters / Bird Feeders


 
This bird feeder is in my friend's backyard.  She has two of these hanging feeders which attract a lot of attention. These beautiful feathered critters are having a feast on a very rainy day! I shot these through a window and I struggled with the focus.

So many goldfinches on one feeder! I've hung two niger feeders so there's not so much fighting over the one.

I had finch feeders last summer for the first time. It's amazing to watch at just how many can feed at one of these.
Windows are not always our best friends but you did well Carolyn!
For me it's either through the window or I don't get nearly the number of bird shots I'd like. :)

I like to use the window as a blind too, but it can be challanging.
The improvised doggy rain coat is great as are the very colorful socks. As usual, you've been posting a lot of great shots.
