So today was supposed to be close-ups of woodpeckers at the suet feeder. I checked the memory card this morning and decided the camera was just a bit too close to the feeder. Here are a couple of the pics from Round 1. As you'll see, suet attracts a lot more than just woodpeckers.
I repositioned the camera and left it for a couple of hours. No woodpecker photos late morning and I was still not happy with the pics I was getting. Here are a couple of Round 2 photos before I again repositioned the camera.
Round 3 went better. By now I've looked at a couple hundred photos today; the camera is truly getting a workout. Some woodpeckers have arrived, along with the usual cast of characters.
I just noticed that today I've reached a second milestone. I earn a few pennies each time someone sees an ad on the blog that interests them and clicks on it. My all-time earnings eclipsed $50 today ;)
In case you're interested, the camera that caught all these birds on a real cold day is a Moultrie Game Spy, Model D-55IRxt. (Big thanks again, Nigel and Natalie, for a gift that keeps on giving!)
The last photos are from Round 4; maybe this is where the camera should have been all day ;)
No more postings for a couple of days. The cameras need a break from the cold. I'll be back soon, though, with who-knows-what from who-knows-where!
