The Bewick’s Wren has been a difficult bird for me to photograph. I think it is probably due to the way I approach bird watching. It is tough for me to just wait for a bird to come to me, consequently I go out after them. Seems like I am never close enough for a good picture, so I sneak up closer and they fly farther away, next thing you know I am a half mile from where I started.
I am quite certain that if I starting taking pictures in a forest or mountain area I would take off and never be heard from again. There just has to be another bird on the next bush, or the one after that. It is a lot like gold panning I suppose. That big nugget is always in the next pan, or the next, or the next. The sad part about it is I don’t even need to see a bird, just hearing one sends my on my may. Have you ever been in the woods and try not to heard a bird?
Back to the Wren. This one let me get fairly close, and even sat still while I fumbled with my digital camera. Seems like I am always punching the wrong button on it and it goes into the “you figure it out” mode just as the bird flies off. hahahaha
Also had to add a quick shot of Bob and Sally at the duck pond today. The Western King Bird was a bonus for me as well, I thought it was a blackbird. – darn colors anyway….
Have a Happy Bird day
