This Backyard Feeder Camera Attracted a Variety of Birds

 A trip to your front or back yard is likely to be a frequent occurrence for you, particularly in these lockdown days where opportunities to breathe in fresh air are limited. On some occasions, you may be lucky enough to spot a Blue Jay drinking from a bird bath or a woodpecker sitting atop a tree branch. However, as you move towards it, hoping to get a close-up photograph or even just gaze at its distinct colors, the bird is likely to fly away before you’re within viewing distance.

Lisa, a woman who is better known by the name Ostdrossel, found that a camera attached to a feeder in her yard captured some of the most magnificent stills of different types of birds. She soon turned this lucky photographic marvel into a full-time hobby, taking incredible candid shots of birds to print on various items like masks, cards, and stickers. These are just a few of the stunning birds that she has since had the pleasure of having on her candid camera!
