Video of two American Tree Sparrows feeding in our yard.

This video goes along with yesterday's post on our American Tree Sparrow flock. For Christmas, Rick gave me a Canon PowerShot Digital Elph (a tiny camera for photographing people at parties, not birds in the wild). But yesterday, while playing around with the video option, I caught two American Tree Sparrows feeding in our side yard just outside the kitchen window. I compressed the file way down, which lessened the quality, but it’s still a great picture also considering it's from such a tiny camera. I’ve never posted a video, so this will be an experiment. I’m going through Vimeo. It had just started to snow when I shot this video and you can see the little flakes.

Nice job, Kelly.
And its nice and bright--some tend to be hard to see.

(That must be BEFORE the really big, bigger flakes?)

Thanks, Nina! was about 2 hours before the really big flakes started falling...and falling...and falling!

Nice video Kelly. Kinda makes me wish I had video capabilities on my DSLR. Too many other toys on the wish-list, though!

Kelly said...'s a fun little movie maker! I'm glad Rick surprised me with it.
