Kentucky Birding & Bad Photography

Well, maybe not horribly bad..
I’m here in Louisville, KY visiting my daughter Jessica and took some early mornings to get out and bird a bit.
The woods are dark in Kentucky and I am learning to operate my new camera – a Canon 60D, with a few lenses, the 400mm used here, which is a huge step up from my Panasonic DMC-FZ10 with a tele-conversion lens that served me well for nearly 8+ years.
One of my first lovely subjects – an Eastern Towhee willing to be relatively still in a bit more light.

This lovely Hooded Warbler gave me no such chance. Now or never, slow poke.There is a White-breasted Nuthatch somewhere in here, I swear. It was way high up in a tree. All these were taken in Mammoth Cave Park – where I was supposed to meet a birding group from the Kentucky Beckham Birding Club. My iPhone map app took me to some obscure entrance far far away.Back in Louisville, I practiced on easier subjects.
This Robin had so many worms in its mouth I almost.. well let’s just leave it at that.
I’ve got a few books and even a video. I am going to really learn how to use this amazing blessing!

OH! I haven’t forgotten about the June Bird Book Giveaway – it’s coming soon I promise!
