Birds are one of the most exquisite creatures to roam the earth. Their varying array of colors, mesmerizing plumage, and unmatched ability to compose melodious tones never fail to capture our eyes and ears. Their ability to fly makes them even more mysterious and unreachable. However, modern technologies have paved the path to enjoying these beauties without disrupting their routine.
Bird watchers have a hard time engaging in their hobby as some people tend to consider them creepy. Yes, creepy. Just as much as it might seem creepy, it is also very enjoyable. All you need is a pair of binoculars, a hotspot for birds, and an enormous amount of patience. The last necessity is very hard to muster and that is why most people fail to see the joy behind birdwatching.
Lisa, who goes by the name Ostdrossel on her social media, is one of those who can’t get enough of nature and birds. When she moved to Macomb County in Michigan from Germany, she tried to find ways to continue her passion. She set up a bird feeder camera in her yard and captured thousands of mesmerizing photographs of these amazing creatures. From crazy to majestic, she has captured a set of diverse emotions of birds.
Her bird feeder cam consists of a camera box, a macro lens, and a bird feeding platform attached to it. The motion sensor of the camera triggers when a bird comes to eat on the feeder. Then, the camera does its job in a non-intrusive way. Birds enjoy the treats without knowing they are being watched and photographed. This photoshoot takes place every day in Lisa’s yard every day, under any weather conditions. Sometimes the number of photographs taken per day reaches a whopping 7000.
The rich personalities of a variety of birds shine through Lisa’s gallery. Here we have compiled 20 such photographs from Lisa’s amazing gallery. Enjoy them and leave your thoughts in the comments!
