North American Songbirds

Bird Watching In the Northeast

The hours of daylight are getting longer. It’s finally beginning to feel like spring, and many of us in the northern hemisphere look forward to the return of migrating birds. Many birds migrate to a specific area to breed and raise their young.

The time it takes a bird to complete its one way migration can range from a few weeks to four months, depending on the distance. Soon the air will be filled with song!

The Northern Cardinal is abundant across the eastern United States from Maine to Texas and in Canada. Its natural habitat is woodlands, gardens, shrub lands, and swamps. This bird is a permanent resident throughout its range, it may relocate to avoid extreme weather or when food is scarce. The Northern Cardinal is the most popular state bird, representing Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.

The Eastern Bluebird loves to perch on tree branches and wires observing insect prey. An eastern bluebird will swoop down and catch a flying insect or go down to the ground to feed on a grasshopper, cricket or other insect. The Eastern Bluebird is the state bird of Missouri and New York.

The Baltimore Oriole is a medium sized songbird with a long pointed bill and a beautiful flute-like song. The Oriole builds a “hanging basket” nest at the top of tall trees, usually elm or maple. They eat insects, fruit and nectar. It’s easy to entice a Baltimore Oriole to your backyard by placing orange halves on a feeder fruit side up.

Tips for Winter Photography

Photographing Subjects In The Snow

Here are some helpful hints for taking photographs of subjects and landscapes in the snow. Using program mode on your camera for winter photography will produce ‘gray’ snow. To correct this you can add at least 1/3 to 2 stops more depending upon light, shoot in manual mode, adjust exposure/brightness in camera, or during post processing.

If you’re going to go out and brave the cold, check your camera settings before you go outside. Bright snow reflects light, try not to overexpose which will results in loss of details.
