Today started off as a cloudy, rainy day but quickly became a beautiful, clear, sunny afternoon. With the sun came some of natures ornaments dressing the berry tree in my front yard. There were a plethora of birds in and around the berry tree today.
The morning started off with some loud ticks from the House Finches with a Turkey Hawk circling overhead. The sky was heavily overcast and the House Finches are so tiny it was hard to focus behind all those branches. This is the best shot I got.
Later in the day, the overcast started to clear up and turned into a beautiful blue sky.
Soon after, the birds started coming out one after the other chirping and squawking loudly as if asking me where the food is. Besides the House Finch and the Turkey Hawk, there were Seagulls, European Starlings, Song Sparrows, Mockingbirds, Blue Jays and Cardinals. Here are an assortment of photos capturing the different species.
