    Hermit Thrush bird photography by Leanne Wildermuth
    I decided to join in on this weeks Bird Photography Weekly (#40) since I have a few bird shots that I’ve been wanting to share with you!

    The beauty above is a Hermit Thrush – new to my yard and it took me a little while to identify her. I used my Bird Songs: 250 North American Birds in Song book
    (and confirmed with Taba), and was just giddy to have a new visitor to my yard!

    Red Winged Blackbird male bird photography by Leanne Wildermuth
    This male Red Winged Blackbird joined us over dinner by the river last weekend, he and his spouse were enjoying the tortilla chips I broke up and tossed their way.

    The female Red Winged Blackbird came much closer than the male, such a pretty little girl. I’m glad I tucked my (big honkin’) camera in my purse before we left the house! There are always neat creatures hanging out down by the Mississippi River.

    I hope you enjoyed my birds this week – we’ll see what photo ops present themselves for next week!

    great bird shots!

    the other day DD & I were waiting for our friends outside a Panda Express and the sparrows came right up to us hoping for a handout. One landed about a foot from me. I guess they were too used to the humans.

    Some really nice pics…I just LOVE them.
    These birds are so beautiful !
    Oh, and for some reason little bird legs always crack me up.
    Thanks for sharing, Leanne.

    Great photos as always! I’m working on identifying the birds that hang out around my home. A friend gave me a great little book about WI birds that has been quite helpful. That bird songs book looks great though! I’d love to know whose voices I’m hearing when I open the door in the morning!

    Great photos thanks for sharing. I looked around on the site a bit but didn’t see what type of camera you used. I am thinking of getting a new camera.
