Readers’ wildlife photos

January 1, 2021 • 8:15 am

Please keep sending in the wildlife photos. For some reason, they’re coming in more slowly than usual. (Perhaps it’s the holidays.)

Today’s batch of birds (and one mammal) comes from reader Bob Fritz. His notes are indented; click on the photos to enlarge them.

Some recent photos (primarily birds) taken in my neighborhood (Orange County, California).
Lesser Goldfinch (Spinus psaltria):

Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata):

California ground squirrel (Otospermophilus beecheyi):

Western Bluebird (Sialia mexicana):

White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophyrs):

    1. Thanks! The goldfinch in the second photo is sitting in our backyard fountain pot – the fast shutter made the water jet appear like a solid object.

  1. A great RWP to start the New Year. Some very interesting shots (bubbler, close-up portraits, angry bluebird). thanks!

    1. Hi James – thank you very much! The camera is a Sony a7r iv. The lens for the squirrel was the Sony 100-400. The lens for the birds was the Sony 200-600.
