As you can see, all this time away from the blog has not improved my bird photography skills one bit.
I love having kingbirds around; they're among my favorite summer birds. A pair has nested in the neighborhood the past two years and I waste a lot of time just imagining explanations for their funny personality quirks...
I knew their babies had fledged this past weekend based solely on the increased frenzy in their parent's shrill, chattering cries.
I was hopeful that there'd be a snapshot like last year's, but no.
One of the parents, scaring up bugs in the hydrangea off the porch, was my best chance at a snapshot and I missed it. Darn misbehaving camera.
