As a child, i liked to watch and identify birds. Equipped with my field guide, i looked them up and told my grandma what i found. Not in the professional ornithology way, but still. It changed when i got older and developed other interests. In a way, i rediscovered it during the lockdown and home office because in front of my window is a Norway maple tree and many different birds visit the tree. It is fun to observe them, especially when i got my Vivitar 400mm 5.6 lens. So here are some of my attempts to capture some birbs on film:

Here i realized that the starling has really beautiful feather colors when the sun shines on it
A great spotted woodpecker. It was hard to catch
This crow was my first test to see if my Vivitar lens worked
On the Tempelhof field you can observe many kestrels
