Mama Bird 8x10 Photograph by sue8261

This lovely piece, "Mama Bird" is by sue8261. Two years ago, this sweet curious dark-eyed junco, along with her loyal mate, built a nest in my backyard and raised an adorable baby. The devoted parents cared for their baby until it was mature enough to fly off on its own. It was a joy to follow the progress of this loving family with my camera.

I help animals through donations and advocacy. I'm always open to new opportunities to use my art for humane causes.


  1. Awww. I love the way her head leans to one side... it really shows the 'personality' coming thru :)
    THANKS for sharing your lovely work !

  2. As quickly as birds move, that is an amazing shot (not to mention very, very cute ;o)

  3. How cool that you watched the whole process! Beautiful photo!

  4. LOVE this photograph... what a great "pose"!! Well done!

  5. Thank you so much for your nice comments! I just added a photo of mama bird with her baby to my Etsy shop if you'd like to see the two together.

  6. That must have been wonderful to watch these birds raise their family. The photo is beautiful.
