Why hike?

cardinal female in birchesI know, its kinda cheating to take pictures of birds at my birdfeeder.  But I’ve been out hiking a bit, even in very cold weather, looking to see what wildlife and birds I might see…nuthin!  I’m telling you, not even a chickadee!  I get home and take a very warm shower to try and fend off frostbite, have some hot tea and watch the fun at my birdfeeder (click on pic to enlarge):

Now that's one very handsome white-throated sparrow!

During breeding season, male cardinals are very territorial but when the snow hits, they can share a feeder.

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
