There is, just by chance, a fence nearby. Also a black locust tree, a birch, a blue spruce, and two cherry trees being consumed by tent caterpillars, while across the dirt road is a line of wild rose, honeysuckle, and berry bushes. If I'm not able to start photographing birds soon, it can only mean the universe is against me. Off to Lowe's tonight since they've the best selection of feeders.

Thanks for all your help (and inspiration), Eric.

we don't have such birds around here. so I don't need to try taking photos of them. besides that I guess I wouldn't be able to with a Canon A60.

Great shot. very good composition, cleat and sharp. superb!

hmm.....too far from wat? your house? maybe you can find a blind....then you can place the feeder at the best possible spot...and then you can get a router, and a really long ethernet cable, and use the internet in the blind until some birds come

Lol, this is funny... Barbara, the secret in birding is even in the open, don't move.. get a chair if you want but just wait.. Eventually they won't be bothered by your presence and will act their own normal way.

Cheers

Eric, that's a tip that I'd agree with fully. It's a nice feeling too, to be somewhat accepted into their wonderful world.

Eric, being able to sit and wait without getting consumed by insects (they adore me) was a major concern, and so we're setting up the fancy bird feeder at a spot between the blue spruce and the black locust trees, which the birds love, and still close enough to the stoop at the back of the house where I love to sit at all times of the year and where the tripod will rest level and sturdy.

My husband has nearly completed a pole that has two hangers, one for a tube feeder, the other for a "house" with a small tray. It also has two platforms, one of which will hold a tray feeder, the other a shallow birdbath. I've the feeling I'll be witness to bird wars. I'll likely have time to do a lot of meditating, too.
