    Bird photography with wildlife cam

    July 18, 2019 ... I set my old camera up on a tripod in front of the millet feeder and then went for a run with Donna. We were gone a little over an hour including the drive. When I checked the camera images there were 167 shots! Sparrows were the dominate (Song sparrows??) and I had a visit from an Indigo Bunting along with cardinals, titmice and an unknown or two.

    Below are some of the photos.. the time stamp on my camera is way off and I don't know how to fix it. (cheap camera). In one photo, a sparrow lit on the camera for a close-up. Click on photos to enlarge...

    Good fun, thanks.
    I don't see any Sparrows. Song Sparrows are long gone, but the odd Chipping Sparrow or Field Sparrow is about.

    I see a lot of House Finch. This is fun as birds eat what is available.
    I am guessing you are low on Sunflower.

    No, I have two feeders with sunflower to refill almost daily with lots of traffic. Those sparrows also look like female purple finches or female rose-breasted gros-beaks but I have not been seeing any males of those two.

    My hummers are picking up the pace now also and I like this time of year because I do not have to throw out spoiled nectar. They empty the feeders before it spoils.

    That makes sense. I will make a mental note of that but I'd better write it down instead.

    Photo from Audubon matches very well.
