Birds in Sunflower Fields

Flowers, Nature, Photography

I went back to McKee Beshers sunflower field yesterday to see if had a better luck in spotting more birds visiting the sunflower field. Yes, there were many birds, especially American Goldfinches flying around. However, they were fast-moving creatures and very sensative to people, so I had to shoot from distance and even with my 600mm telephotolens the sharpness often not as desirable as I’d like. Nevertheless, I was happy to capture a couple of American Goldfinches, an indigo bunting and a purple finch.

  1. We have goldfinches in our front yard almost everyday right now, visiting the patch of wildflowers that I planted last year.

    I used to have goldfinches visiting my bird feeder but not anymore.I did shoot many of them at the zinnia flower bed at Hoemstead Farm a few years but no more either. Lucky for you to see them in your front yard!
