The Feathered Friends Show Me A Photo Contest, Round 3 – Two Birds

When I saw the contest announcement for the latest round in the Feathered Friends “Show Me A Photo” contest, I knew immediately what photo I wanted to enter for the theme of Two Birds. But just to be sure, I decided to scan my hard drive for other pairs of birds, as I knew I had at least a few of them.

Many hours, and over sixty photos later, I decided I should probably stop looking… 😂

But after all that searching, I figured I should at least share some of them, so I narrowed it down to only those shots that showed the same type of bird (I also have a bunch with odd couple pairings that I figure I’ll save for another potential contest down the road).

Before I get to the photos though, a little bit about the contest itself – it was put together by @nelinoeva, and sponsored by Feathered Friends Community and @melinda010100. As for the rules, here’s the basic rundown from the post Feathered Friends – Show Me A Photo Contest Round 3

Theme this week – TWO BIRDS (The birds must present in the same photo)

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends.
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme, which will be announced each Sunday.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the comment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest.

Last, but not least – have fun!

As for the photos, these were all taken between March 2016 and May 2019, with my Nikon (or in a couple of cases, my old Olympus) affixed to my tripod, in my Durham New Hampshire yard. And as was the case with my Zazzle Feathered Friends greeting cards post, I’m fairly certain all of these have previously appeared on my WordPress and/or my Hive blogs in the interim, or on my social media. However, I’ve given all of these a fresh edit and a tweak or two on PicMonkey so they’ll look their contest-y best!

  1. I love your watching birds. We put a bird feeder on our deck in the winter and it’s amazing all the different kinds of birds that show up. We’ve got two cardinal couples and they’re bright red feathers are a nice contrast to the dull grays and browns of winter. ๐Ÿ™‚
