Here are some pictures from my visit today to my parents house. They live on upper Cape Cod and their yard borders several acres of state forest. They always have a steady stream of birds visiting the bird feeders in the front and back yards.
Today was mostly a practice day, learning how to take pictures with my camera. I don't have the greatest camera, but it's good enough for right now. I was pretty excited about the chickadee I was able to capture in flight.
With the holiday coming up this week I'll have much more time to spend watching for birds both here in Boston and on the Cape.
I'll also spend some time researching birding and learning what I need to get started in this hobby.
