A powershot on sterioids…that’s what I call my Canon SX50HS, which is usually the camera that I use to take pictures for this blog. It works great for getting bird photos because it has a ton of ZOOM. And yes, the capital letters are so you know I am not exaggerating!
My second camera is a Canon T3i Rebel, which sadly does not get nearly the use that it deserves. Yesterday, I was feeling sorry for this lovely picture taking device and decided to give it a chance to be “bird camera for a day.” Here are several photos courtesy of camera number two.
Although I had to do a lot of cropping (it only has lowercase zoom) it did a better job than I thought. I think the last picture is my favorite.
I probably will stick with the Powershot for most of my bird pictures, but I am determined to get the Rebel out more often. No camera should stay tucked away in a case!

🙂 They are all beautiful! Such lovely friends you have visiting your backyard!
Thanks Jodi. I love my backyard birds, but something about spring makes me itch to get out other places to take pictures!
They really are terrific still, Kathy. I like the last one best too *sisters*
The Rebel doesn’t have the zoom, but it makes for a bit nicer background. Now I am itching for a new lens!
Really good clear shots Kathy!
Thanks. With winter ending and spring popping up my camera is calling my name!
Thank you! My camera keeps trying to tempt me to play hooky from all other commitments!
Great captures Kathy! 🙂
Thanks H.J. 🙂 Isn’t Georgia lovely right now!
Nice click! I love each and every photo you captures ☺️👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
And I love each and every painting you paint. 🙂
Hehheh I’m blushed ☺️😀
Love your pictures of our feathered friends.
Thank you. You always have such kind things to say! 🙂
That little Rebel did a good job, I’d say.
I know, right! The problem is, I took it out of its case and now it is begging me to buy it a new lens!
These are great. I have the same camera and love it. It’s really all about the lenses, anyway. What you do so well on your photos is to isolate the bird from the background, so that there are no ugly sticks interfering with the bird!
I just ordered a 70-300mm lens. Can’t wait to play with it.
They all look good to me. Clear and sharp. I do like the warbler.
It did a great job, Kathy! I will need to give my other Canon a shot as well in due time when I have invested in a better zoom, but I’m afraid it will never be as “usable” and light as the HS50 … I can’t pick a favorite here, they are all very good!
It really is hard to beat the SX50!
I have the Rebel too. I need to learn how to use it better. My hubby got me a tripod for my birthday. Your photos are AMAZING! 😜🐦👍
I got a tripod for Christmas and haven’t set it up yet…but it’s on my to-do list!
Fantastic captures, Kathy, all of them!
Love the blue jay picture.
