I feel pretty fortunate that I am able to stand in my dining room, look out the window, and see these beautiful birds.
On the day I took this photo, it was close to -30C, which would explain why this fella is so puffed up. He’s also keeping a close eye on the suet balls, patiently waiting for his turn to eat. I took this shot through the window with my D3000, on a tripod, and using my 200mm lens.
I think I’ve mentioned before that my new D7100 was in the hospital… well I finally have it back and I couldn’t be happier. But I can also tell you that I was pretty thankful that I had kept my D3000 – I’ve had it for four years and it has never let me down – it certainly saved my bacon this month!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
glad you have your camera back. :)

So glad you got your camera back…it’s a lost feeling not to have it handy!!
Thank you, Kathy! I need to see that movie!

Love how the birds puff their feathers for warmth. The color here is beautiful.
Very nice view from your window while staying cozy and warm! Glad your camera is all better. I’d be lost if mine had to make a trip to the hospital.

Wow, gorgeous birds! I am glad you had the camera with you to capture this beauty!
Great photo. Love the blue on these birds. I should start feeding the birds again. We don’t have the pretty ones around much anymore. When the boys were home growing up, my oldest always had a feeder and we had plenty that would hang around.

So sorry that you D 7100 was in the hospital, but glad for your backup. My D7000 had to go back to Nikon for 6 weeks, and I had sold my backup, so now am the proud owner of a D800 which I lovel. My D7000 is back, but is definitely on the back burner as I love this new camera. Keeping my old one though for a backup. Inconceivable to be without a camera for 6 weeks, and my iphone could not take its place. Love this shot of your fluffy and chilly birds.
