About a week and a half ago, I received a new tube-style bird feeder, courtesy of Kingsyard. What I like about it:
- It’s the only feeder that I think is pretty enough to hang in the front yard.
- The food stays dry, even during heavy rain.
- The birds love it.
- I love photographing it.
A few quick notes. First, you’ll notice wide variations in lighting in many of these photographs. Since I am able to photograph this feeder from all sides, I’m still trying to figure out which angles/times of day work best. At the moment, I think I prefer early morning direct sunlight, but more experimentation is required.
Also, you’ll notice that the majority of birds who use this feeder are little…except for the doves.
It is my experience that Mourning Doves will find a way to fit themselves onto any size or style of feeder that will accommodate them if they’re hungry enough.
I hope you enjoy these photographs.
