PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/29/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: Over the next six to eight months, I am hoping to finalize the image selection for a coffee table style photography book titled “Splash!” for publishing by fall 2017. This photograph is one of the top candidates for this species. It is part of a new series, where just the right balance of slow shutter speed and motion combine to capture the water as it streaks across the background. The Catbird, like many species, keep their head and body relatively still, while they whip the water with their wings. This tends to result in a picture with a sharp eye, surrounded by an abstract of liquid fireworks. Their wing-flapping motion helps them to condition their feathers for flight and makes a unique display of a routine activity. There are already sixty-eight species covered in the initial layout of the book, with hopes of adding a couple more “wish-list” species during the upcoming fall and spring migrations. Images are divided into various chapters, thus far titled: Drinking, Wintering, Bathing, Thrushes, Bird’s Eye View, Warblers, Youngsters and of course Splashing. My goal is to display the beauty of the birds as well as to demonstrate the benefits of having water in almost any backyard habitat.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. A total of EIGHTY species has been attracted at a single location in central Virginia!
