Junco Posing for the Photographer

It is hard to believe. But recently as I was walking past a maple tree I noticed a little bird with a black cap, a cute little junco, sitting on a branch. Normally they fly away as soon as you point the camera in their direction. It is quite possible that he must have observed me a couple of times as I was filling the bird feeder and perhaps thought that no harm could come by staying and in gratitude would allow me to take a couple of shots. Well, if this sounds like an unbelievable story, have a look at the pictures and decide for yourself. Enjoy.

      1. Nein, leider nicht und ich habe auch noch nie so einen gesehen. Danke für Deine Antwort und die feinen Bilder von den kleinen und süßen Kerl. Herzliche Grüsse Ruth

  1. Beautiful!

    And why not detecing you as someone who ist “friendly” towards you? Birds have small brains but they can do magnificient things with them: Learn new songs every year…and to decide if to stay or run.
    One thing is for sure: They use the available neurons of their brain in multiple ways.

    1. I hope our brains can learn from them a few things important to our survival. It seems that we are hardwired towards inevitable self-destruction. Best wishes! Peter

  3. Indeed, it is amazing! I also try many times but it is impossible to photograph birds. I would say that you got very lucky as the photos are very clear and beautiful; thank you for sharing them and good luck with the future spring photos near the Arrow lake ! 🙂
