One year ago today – Brewer’s Blackbird

Brewer's Blackbird femaleBrewer’s Blackbird female

One year ago today it was slow on Antelope Island, not many birds were close enough to photograph but on the way home I spotted this female Brewer’s Blackbird on some rocks near one of the bridges. I like the setting, the bird’s pose with her raised foot and the wispy grass stalks in the background. She made the trip worth it.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.

    Hi! Ilove to see close-ups of the birds I saw,but were further away and not get the beautiful full view of them! Thank you for such a good memorable time. love ya 2

  2. Excellent capture Mia! Love the vibrant blue background!!

  3. Mia, I love this. Sometimes there is nothing to film and a Brewer’s is so common. But then we find that common bird against a beautiful setting and SNAP! And it’s funny how that one shot will make the whole trip worthwhile. This is a gorgeous shot. Nicely captured.

  4. What a delightful shot..beautiful blend of grasses and the lifted foot..

  5. What an absolute beauty!!

  6. The bird and setting are quite beautiful! Superb photograph!
