Front Yard Photography

If you have been reading my blog from way back, you know I own pet birds. Sadly, I used to have 5 (2 cockatiels and 3 parakeets), now I only have 2 parakeets left. 2 (the cockatiels) died from disease and 1 (parakeet) flew away. Since my pet birds do spill a lot of food, and I usually leave them in my front yard during the day time, a lot of wild birds have made nests in the bushes in my front yard. They usually come on during the day time to scavenge the food my birds have spilled on the floor. Sometimes I even see my pet birds spill food for them on purpose. I wonder if they can understand each other... Anyways, what a better place to get photos of birds than my own front yard right? Today, that is all there will be. Bird photos from my front yard. Enjoy!

Today's photos was taken using the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens and a few of the photos was lit up using a Canon Speedlite 580EX II.

White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophys)
The reason you see so many leaves is because these photos were taken half way through last year December. I got 5 giant trees in my front yard and all the leaves started falling. HAHA A lot of work raking them up!

California Towhee (Pipilo crissalis)

Can't see the "crown" on the bird, but should be either a golden-crown or a white-crown. That is the only types I see in the bushes.

I saw a lot of little birdies flying around and hopping on the ground eating my parakeet's leftovers. LOL So make sure you check back soon! Also, please don't forget to share the photo with your friends and family members! See you next time!
