Bird Photography During the Pandemic – Part 5

I have continued to photograph birds that frequent our bird feeders. This will probably be my last post of the season because fewer birds are visiting the feeders as temperatures drop and the sun is very low in the sky during the day. The feeders will remain during the fall and winter for those birds that do not migrate.

Sony Alpha 1 Mirrorless Digital Camera
Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS Lens
Sirui L-10 Aluminium Tilt Monopod Head
AmazonBasics Carbon Fiber Monopod
General Brand 77mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood

See my last post for a photo of the feeder setup. All photos were taken from indoors, shooting through a double-pane window, using a black cloth to conceal my location. The rubber lens hood allows the front of the lens to be close to the window and helps reduce/eliminate reflections.
