Storm Warning!

There's a storm a-brewin'!

Despite the fact that tomorrow is the first day of Spring, we're in for a nasty snow storm. While I personally could do without it, it will most certainly bring lots of birds to the feeder.

Be sure to check in tomorrow!

New lens

Black-capped Chickadee
I *finally* purchased a new lens for my camera. My husband urged me to...so I bit the bullet. I got a new 55-200 telephoto lens for my Canon Rebel XTi. I got out and had the opportunity to take a few photos of "the regulars" this weekend.

I still have lots to learn when it comes to photography, but so far, so good.

I'm hoping that as I get more comfortable with my camera, I'll be able to capture some of the less common birds that visit. These birds are all pretty used to me, so I could get pretty close or fiddle with my camera settings without them flying off.

Downy Woodpecker
Hopefully this is the beginning of many great photos that I can share with all of you!
