The birds of Alliston
They wake up quite early maybe around 5 or 6am i can hear them calling me from the window... all 100 of them.
I am awake...
I put on my 70-200mm lens (my new baby), and stood near there bird house and waited. The bluejays are out first thing, there is 2 of them in the area, but they don't like fast movement. You have to gain their trust. Unfortunately i only took 1 photo of them from afar. Once they know you are they, they won't come back until your gone.
YES i had a fast shutter speed and still could not catch them.
Every couple of minutes i stepped closer. And snaped about 2 photos per bird. First click they would flintch and second click they would fly away. It was unpredicatable where they would land, There were a couple of areas they enjoyed on the metal/wooden stand for the bird house. You had to be fast, i learnt that the 3rd day, i made a huge improvement.
I realized i need to buy an 2x extender and not another expensive lens.
The woodpecker would come one in a while... i saw him about 3 times that week. There was a big one and a little baby one. They are beautiful. I love there red bed head :)
