If you sit still enough they will come!

Winter is upon us(even though you would never guess it here in California) and with that it means new migrating birds! Now I haven’t yet managed to take any great pictures of the incoming birds(mostly because I honestly don’t have the patience to sit still for hours) I did have some luck with some birds this week:

Mourning Dove. These birds are usually very skittish but for once they actually decided to come up close today!

Another one of our wintering birds, the Stellars Jay! one of my favorite birds) These guys hang out in the mountains the rest of the year and come down to us in winter.

Cheers!!!
