“Nuffing”   8 comments


There’s a guy at our local Farmer’s Market who makes birdhouses out of materials reclaimed from old barns and tobacco sheds. His larger pieces are works of art, and each has a history to it. Jeff can tell you exactly where each component came from, and the story behind the building.

For our new backyard arrangement, we’ve posted a few new bird abodes, and it wasn’t long before the renters came by to measure for curtains. We now have a family of Black Cap Chicadee in one box, and this family, which I believe is Tufted Titmouse. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.)

It was hard to get this shot — they move so fast! But, by setting up the tripod and doing a fast remote trigger, I managed to grab one or two images before they’d duck inside with more building materials.

I was delighted when I saw that I caught this guy. “What are you doing?”, I asked. “Nuffing.”
