One of the first things I did when I moved to the new studio is hang up some bird feeders in hopes of attracting a few of “the locals” to come by for a visit. It has taken a little while for my guests to arrive, I don’t think they much liked the workmen coming and going, but now they’ve here in force. The rain doesn’t seem to bother them much as long as the feeders are kept full!This little fellow is a Black-Capped Chickadee according to my Peterson’s Field Guide to Western Birds and he has a lovely bright song. OK, not so lovely at 6 am, but he’s very cheerful! I was just thrilled to get an image of this soggy little hummingbird. I’m not sure what type he (or maybe she?) is but it paused barely long enough for me to get the picture. This little bird was drinking the rain drops as they ran down the branches of the tree…very clever!
Another rain day, perfect for an afternoon in the studio…
What lovely company you have outside your studio. Plenty of inspiration there I suspect.
