No Vacancy

Back in 2018, our best friend give us a Bluebird house for our back yard for Christmas. The Bluebirds are a group of medium-sized, mostly insectivorous or omnivorous birds .  They are part of the thrush family. Bluebirds are one of the few thrush genera in the Americas. We prep the bird house, and placed in our backyard according to the instructions.  It should be at least 5 feet above the ground.  But there were no tenants until this year.

I was self-quarantine, not because I have COVID-19 virus, but because the weather been wet on the east coast this spring.  I was reading a book in the sunroom and notice Bluebirds using our bird house.  It been on the market for over a year and rent was cheap, like free!  I have 3 bird feeders in my backyard, which attracts, bears, deers, rabbits, squirrels, and host of other birds, but not any Bluebirds until this years.   I think it’s cool now that I had tenants, a nice little family.  They were busy building nest inside the house.

I used my Nikon D7500 camera with the  Nikon DX AF-S NIkkor 55-300mm | 4.5-5.6 G ED VR lens, with the lens at 300mm.  I used my camera in Manual mode, with AUTO-ISO enable.  I started with the Aperture at f/5.6 and didn’t the results, then up it to f/8.


I also notice the BlueBirds were flying about, so I changed my Shutter Speed to 1/200 to see if I could catch it in flight.


Then, I decided to change the Shutter Speed to 1/400.
