Backyard Birds

Some pictures of birds that visit my feeder regularly. All photos taken through the glass of the window in the living room, after a round of window cleaning!

Female Cardinal


Mourning Dove


Baby House Finch


Male House Finch


Female House Finch

There are many other birds that come, but I have not been very successful in capturing them on camera. Plus the windows are usually dusty from the outside, which results in unclear pictures!

Shilpa - The male birds seem to be endowed with more colors than the female birds. The little Finch is very cute. All photos are excellent.

The male birds are always with the pretty colors - the male Cardinal, male Mallard, Bluebird. Someone told me it because the females are the protectors of the nests and they need to blend in with the surroundings to stay safe. Made sense to me!
