Backyard Birds in the Rain

May 05, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Even with all my travel to photograph nature, sometimes I find the best pictures of birds on my back porch at home! There was a long soaking rain here in Atlanta yesterday that totally soaked all my little feathered friends. Because it is their breeding season there were any number of young birds flying around with their parents. It has always been fun to watch the parents as they feed the little ones right on the feeders. The sounds they make are especially entertaining. Finches really seem to be the most "talkative".

Because of the overcast conditions the light was superb for bird photography, and I took total advantage! I will post several images here that I enjoyed the most and hope that you too enjoy them...
