Winter Cardinal and Warbler

As you have probably noticed, I have been away from blogging for a while. The why and what for’s I will not get into right now. Never-the-less, I am still taking photographs of Maine birds, landscapes and architecture. I started a new website called Capture Maine which basically showcases my landscape and architecture photography.

I’ve pretty much given up on Facebook. I just don’t like what it’s turning out to be and I have a lot of issues with privacy concerns. You can still find my tweets on Twitter. Another social network that I frequent a lot and really like is Google+. The interaction with other photographers from all over the world is incredible! If you have an account with G+, you can add me to your circles by going to my Google+ Page. If you do not have an account, you can still follow my posts on my Plusses blog.

 Now back to birds. We had a minor snowstorm yesterday and there were quite a few birds visiting our feeders. One particular bird, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, decided to spend the winter with us. He has been around since mid November and loves suet and peanut chips. Dark-eyed Junco’s are plenty as are American Goldfinches. We also saw 4 Bald Eagles flying around the cove, two adult and two second year.

Enjoy the photos below of the Northern Cardinal and the unusual wintering Yellow-rumped Warbler.
