Bird Photos SPRING, SUMMER wild backyard birds
The pictures on this page are of those birds that are visiting the Modesto California backyard in Spring and Summer. Photos will be added as these backyard wild birds are caught on camera. And, one can only hope for the camera to be ready as those most delightful bird scenes are taking place. These picture are taken with a Fugi FinePix camera. And for these Spring, Summer pictures a telescopic lens is added.
Bird colorings are changing, especially on many of the male birds. It's hoped to capture more of these deeper, darker, colorful spring/summer birds on camera and post pictures here.

Especially welcomed are those wild bird pictures from around California's Central Valley. However, any special bird picture will be considered regardless of your location, a good picture is a good picture.
