Wild Birds

A House Finch grabbing seeds from the feeder.

A Turkey Vulture that we surprised as we came around a turn in the road on Sunday. This was a quick shot through the windshield so it isn't clear but I do like all the greenery surrounding this big guy.

Nice catch with the turkey vulture - you're a quick draw with the camera! The little house finch is very cute, too!

Contrasting birds -- sweet and tiny and ? and large ;>)....he actually looks kinda' handsome surrounded with the green.

Sweet little house finch. You know, I don't think I've ever seen a vulture sitting in a tree. Great capture!

I love seeing all your birds... so different to what I see.

For me , I'm surprised to see this guy in a tree. Maybe it's because where we have turkey vultures there are no trees.

Hi Carletta, great captures. I love birds and don't get to see finches really around my area. This was a treat!

Nancy said...

What a cute finch...I must say the vulture is not too cute but glad you got a shot of him...

By the way, I told Karen that I was riding with you to her house to get the maple creemee...Wouldn't that be fun.....

Nicki said...

I'm amazed you got anything of the turkey buzzard - well done.

Karen said...

Oh, I love the house finches! That vulture shot is terrific!

We have a lot of vultures that roost in some cottonwoods not to far from us. They are fascinating creatures.

Arija said...

Looks like that vulture ie weighing down the branch, the whole makes for a grey composition. Great drive by shot.

Nice capture of that vulture through the branches. I adore the little House Finches. They are fun to watch.
