Buzzard


Bulgaria. Winter, spring and autumn migration just about any time of the year.

 

 

I visit my Bulgarian cottage a few times a year to explore new locations and build up my image collection and add photographs to my fine art print collection.

Exploring the spectacular spring migration along the Black Sea coast, thousands of pelicans return to breed on lake Vaya each year.

Bulgaria is located along the South Eastern corner of the European Union, one of the gates into Europe along the Balkan and the Eastern Europe 

 

Streams of soaring birds in Bulgaria estimates around 734 000 in spring.

Converting colour image files to black and white will often boost their impact dramatically classic shots of icon animals particularly with wildlife shots. Black-and-white images if capture correctly, the photograph is conveying a lot more emotion and a deeper meaning. Subtracting colour from the photograph the artist or viewer is forced to look deeper and to add his own emotion to the images. Wildlife photography doesn't always need to be colourful

Peanuts are also popular to mix in suet for winter feed .

During the cold spell peanuts are a high calorie, fat-rich nut that appeals to many backyard birds , including jays, titmice, nuthatches and chickadees. Because the nuts don't freeze, they are perfect for winter feeding , whether you offer whole or shelled peanuts. 

Common winter birds  include finches, sparrows, titmice, jays, woodpeckers, chickadees and cardinals, though there are always other birds  that may appear at full, enticing feeders. Birders in northern regions may have pine grosbeaks, evening grosbeaks and red crossbills visit their feeders in winter .
