Birds like my back yard, probably because the creek running behind the house. I’ve seen different kinds of bird, just standing in my room.
Once I spotted them, I always tried to take a picture. Of course, I wasn’t lucky all the time—sometimes I could capture a pretty good shot, but most of the time, all I had time to do was to pick up my camera.
A Blue Heron showed up a number of times, usually in early morning or late afternoon. He was always by himself, though, stood in the clear water, or perched high up in the tree. I wondered where his family was. Perhaps he is like me, traveling through the area and decided to stay a little longer in such beautiful place. 🙂
The color of the little red bird is so striking that I wished I could keep it as my pet. Is it a Summer Tanager? That yellow bird was very cute as well, although the picture didn’t do it justice. American Robin is the one I’ve seen all the time. There is a nest above my door. I believe it belongs to the Robin. And there were Hummingbirds; they flew so fast that I had no luck at all to catch a shot of them.
I enjoy watching birds, just as I love seeing wildflowers—simple things like these give me a lot of pleasure. Whenever I was happy, spotted a beautiful wildflower or sighted a cute bird, I thanked my parents to teach me taking pleasure in simple things in life.
