Phoebe, Goldfinch, Full Moon – Foto Friday April 14 2017

Welcome to another Foto Friday! Bit of a shameless plug before I get started – while I’ve mentioned before that I have some of my photos for sale on Fine Art America, I’ve now recently resurrected my Zazzle store. I put together a last minute calendar for 2017, and I’m slowly adding more photos and products. If there’s a picture I’ve taken that you’d like to see on a particular product, feel free to shout out, and I’ll get it put together in short order.

Now, on to the pictures for this week. These were all taken with my Nikon between April 7th and April 14th, 2017.

      Thanks, Clare! I have a love/SHUT UP relationship with the Eastern Phoebes that visit us every year. They build their nest under the back deck on the second floor (which puts them close to our bedroom window). As a result, there’s a period of time that they sit on the railing early every morning, shouting. “FEEBEE” as loud as they can! I have a short video of one of them perched on our roof, if you’d like to peek –

      Happy Easter weekend to you as well!

    I looked at the picture of the goldfinch and wondered why it looks different to the ones we get in the garden. It seems there are European goldfinches and American goldfinches. I can see from yours why they’re called goldfinches, but I think ours are marginally prettier. Like Clare, I’ve never heard of phoebes, but I love the picture at the top of the post.

      I just Googled, and you’re right April – there’s a difference. I think both varieties are gorgeous – I love the coloring on the European, but there’s something about the all over yellow of the American that is very eye-catching. Thanks for letting me know.

      Thank you, Josypheen! I’m rather partial to the moon photos myself. 🙂

      They do spoil me by stopping by to pose so often! Thanks, Hayley!

        I believe they may be flirting with you

        • April 17, 2017 at 6:01 pm

          LOL! Quite possible, and smart to get in good with the crazy bird lady so she keeps bringing out treats!

            Ha they’re certainly not stupid
