Today’s planned blog post remains in draft after being bumped back for yesterday’s sweet video capture of the shy Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes). Apologies for the slightly bumpy tripod work at the start but these birds scurry along the ground like mice and it’s hard to predict which direction they will take next.
Fellow blogger Midmarsh John regularly posts ‘Friday at the Flicks’ with recent video footage and often more than one video too. I thought I’d join him today seeing as my footage was current too.
If you find yourself looking out your window you too will find that it’s much easier to spot small, ground foraging birds with the border plants dying down at this time of year. However, the Wren was not what my video camera was sitting on my tripod poised for yesterday. It was a very nice second prize though :-D
What could beat a Wren capture I hear you ask? Well, I do believe we had a gardenwatch first on Wednesday. I do need video footage of this visitor to confirm my suspicion (should it return). I'm quietly confident it will but will I be gardenwatching at the time - I do hope so :-)
Can you guess what I’m guessing was spotted foraging on my pine tree branches just below the fat ball feeder? Wishing you all a great weekend and hoping my US blogging friends have enjoyed a good Thanksgiving with their friends and families :-)
