First Bird . . .

9 Mar

. . . shot with my Rebel.

Dark-Eyed Junco (female)

It should have been a Raven rather than this sweet female Dark-Eyed Junco.  I was walking up to my classroom and this brazen Raven was on the railing, eyeballing the trash can.  I went into my classroom, got the camera, came back out and the Raven is fine with all this activity.  But, the simple act of turning on the camera and lifting it to point at the Raven caused it to fly off, kronking at me in a most irritated manner.

I was really hoping the curse was on the camera.  But clearly, I am the one cursed by the Ravens.  Sigh.

I know the picture is focused on the tree and not the junco.  I know you can see the fence too clearly.  But, it’s my first bird with the Canon.  Can I keep a list of just bird I’ve taken pictures of with the Canon.  That’s got to be more important than my county list or country list, don’t you think?

    LOL. I would say so.

    Especially since that bird seems very happy to have been included in the shot. 🙂
