Sierra's Birds

Sierra has taken an interest in nature photography. I probably had a hand in that. After our snowstorm last week she took some photos of the birds under the feeder. Here are some of my favorites.

Mourning Dove

I cropped the picture below to get a close up of the white-throated sparrow's profile and was amazed to discover the sparkle of the snow. It gives an interesting and almost unreal backdrop to the bird.

White Throated Sparrow

I did not crop the pictures of the mourning dove and the sparrow below. I don't know if she intended it, or simply has her brother's eye for composition. Or maybe I'm just a doting mom. But I do love her photos. All photos were taken from our window seat and I am surprised at their clarity in spite of the smudgy window. (I should really clean that.)

Nice pics, Sierra! Pretty awesome results considering you were inside when you took them. It's amazing there's not even a hint of reflection. The featehr detail is great!

Wonderful photos, Sierra! I am especially fond of mourning doves as we have several that "live" in our yard.
