I’ve been out walking as often as I can. Work has been hectic lately so I haven’t had a lot of time for long walks. But I’ve managed to get out here and there and walk and photograph birds.
The skies have been overcast quite a bit which has caused low light conditions for photography. Added to the frustrating photography conditions, the birds have insisted on staying in the shadows and diving for cover every chance they get. Or they were always at the far range of my lens. It was a challenging week trying to get a decent photo of a bird. I’m so ready for summer!
So here’s a collection of all the bad bird photos I’ve gotten lately.
I did manage to get a few decent photos. These few stood out of the bunch.
The best photo of the bunch was of this Black Phoebe. It let me get very close and the sun actually shone weakly helping the shot.
I saw some nice wildlife on the trail as well.
Of course, Scarlett wasn’t concerned that photography conditions weren’t ideal. She always makes the best of a walk.

My favorite is the last one!! 😋
Lol! Mine too! She’s been enjoying all the walks!
Where was the Important Bird Area (with Black Phoebe on it) sign located?
It’s in Corrales at the end of Dixon Road. There’s really no parking there so I park at the end of East Ella then walk north about a 1/2 mile. I’m not sure when that sign showed up, but I thought you might have had a hand in its placement. 🙂
Great shots considering the conditions. I know how off-putting diffused light from overcast can be, but you have done very well 1nm. Love your Black Phoebe, a real stunner of a shot.
Thanks so much aussiebirder! It’s always nice to have a cooperative subject.
Some many awesome shots, Kelly! We are our own worst critic, lol. The Ring-necked Duck reflection capture is gorgeous!
Thank you Donna! I think you’re right about our judging ourselves too hard. Lol!
I see what you mean. I did like the Northern Flicker in the snow.
