Today we’re highlighted a young wildlife photographer who has taken some nice photos, Jamie Blilie, the 12-year-old son of James Blilie, whose own photos we’ve featured regularly. It’s time for the next generation:
Here are some photos my 12-year-old son took. He just got a Canon Powershot SX530 (super-zoom camera) and he loves it! He’s very interested in photographing birds right now.Tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) preening on our back fence (they are nesting in one of our birdhouses):
House finch (Haemorhous mexicanus) feasting on the oranges we put out for the orioles:
Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus), bothering our neighbors’ house. Red-necked seems a more appropriate name!
Orchard orioles (Icterus spurius), male and female:
Chickadee, taking a bath in our fountain [JAC: species unidentified, readers can help]:
