Feathered Friends SMaP- BUMS and BOTTOMS

The topic this week for @nelinoeva's SMAP contest is BIRD BUMS/BOTTOMS! I can't wait to see the entries.

'HERE are the rules for this week's Show Me A Photo Contest in the FEATHERED FRIENDS COMMUNITY.*

I've been going out early every morning and sitting on my deck with a cup of tea and my phone in my hand to enjoy the relative coolness of the morning before the day starts to heat up. I took the camera along with me, thinking that it would be easy to get some photos for the contest, but it seemed like every bird wanted to look right at the lens!

This blue jay turned as he prepared to fly off.

And I was able to get a shot of this American gold finch as he had his back to me.

Early morning is my favorite time for bird watching, and as I drug the hose around watering the plants, I was careful not to get the camera wet and still take a few more photos as the opportunity arose!


Red bellied woodpecker

There are so many babies right now! Baby downy woodpeckers are every where! Normally the cylinder feeder needs to be filled once a week and right now with all the baby birds that the parents are bringing to the feeder it only lasts for 2 days!

This little downy woodpecker seems a bit confused about where he was supposed to go and landed on the plant rack right next to me, so close that I had difficulty focusing!

This catbird youngster quickly realized his mistake when he landed atop the grill and noticed me when I lifted the camera!

And this little guy was so wobbly on the bendy branch he was on that I couldn't get a clear shot at all! But he was sure noisy as he sat squawking loudly for his mom!

Hopefully the temperatures begin to cool back down to more normal summer days and I can once again spend more time out on the deck without roasting!

Fun SmaP post. Of course when you want shots of backend of birds you can't get one. Normally you can't get shots from the front 😂 We saw a momma bear and two cubs cross the road about a 1/2 mile up the road so I still haven't put back up any bird feeders this summer. Its really funny watching baby birds chase mom around begging for food now that they are out of the nest. I've seen a few of those scenes.

Of course when you want shots of backend of birds you can't get one.

Except if you live with one, like me. That makes is much easier. But still not easy, if your bird is sitting on your hand. I took the photos blindly.

My entry to the contest: Have you seen my wings? And my bum? (2022.06.20).

!PIZZA.

That was the one good photo from the morning! I had a difficult time getting rear end shots for the theme!

There are so many bird bums I might have mistaken this for a nude forest :)

It is always like that, to get the opposite of what you want. 😄
Lovely shots Melinda, the woodpecker is is such a beauty.
Hope you will have pleasant summer, not too hot.

We are supposed to get some rain over the weekend that will cool off these abnormally hot temperatures for a few days. Hopefully I can spend the days outdoors with my camera!
