Five birds from McDowell Nature Preserve and a business park

I more readily identify the Cardinal with the grosbeak family when (s)he has his(her) crest laid flat like this.

I took all five of these photos with a Nikon Coolpix L810 26x optical zoom

About birdsandbenjamin

I am a resident of the North Carolina foothills and visitor to the mountains who finds great joy in observing and living with one of man's best friends, birds! I have limited photographic equipment, only a Nikon L810 and a pair of binoculars (for long-distance images). Nonetheless, I hope you see the heart behind the images and enjoy the beauty of birds on this blog.

    Great pictures, Benjamin! I think you’ve got a winner with your new Nikon. I like them all, but my favorite is the lit-up tree with the bluebird on top like a star on a Christmas tree. I’m looking forward to seeing more shots from the new camera.
