Bewick’s Wren & Western Kingbird

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
