This Woman Set Up A Photo Booth For Birds In Her Yard, And The Results Are Extraordinary

“This bird has teeth!”

Birds have always been a symbol of freedom. But because of their liberating ability to fly, they seem so unreachable and mysterious to us. Luckily there is a way to meet with nature face to face and explore the beautiful feathered creatures in their natural setting without scaring them away or causing any harm.

Lisa, who goes by the name Ostdrossel on her social media, has always been fascinated by nature and birds, so when following her love to Macomb County in Michigan from Germany, she had an urge to get a little closer to the birds in her yard that are uncommon in her homeland. She began exploring the ways to make it possible and as a result, she has thousands of images capturing different gorgeous bird species, their funny expressions, majestic poses and sometimes crazy behavior.

While experimenting with all kinds of foods to lure the birds in, she’d also set up up a camera trap that helps her implement her idea of exploring the birds from up close. She uses a Bird Photo Booth 2.0 which consists of a camera box, a macro lens and an attachable feeder. She uses a tiny camera equipped with a motion sensor so that when a bird comes to eat, the camera photographs in a non-intrusive way. Her usual evening routine is going through an impressive number of photos taken during the day that can reach up to 7000. A photoshoot takes place every day in Lisa’s yard under any weather conditions.

The birds come back to Lisa‘s yard regularly and some of them visit so often, you can actually recognize them among the rich gallery and notice their personalities shining through. From goofy doves to sad blue jays to hilarious bluebirds, enjoy the amazing insight into the life of beautiful birds.

“Starling performance art.”

“We were all worshipping the sun today.”

“When times are rough, we need to be there for each other, carry each other.”

“Doves can be the picture of pure elegance and beauty. But they are also the biggest goofballs.”

“Christmas Day brought some visitors that I have not seen at the booth in a while ”

“The Bluebirds seem to have gotten a family discount for hypnosis class.”

“The best kind of orange!”

“First Hummingbird pic of the season :) Conditions today are far from perfect, it is rainy and cold, but that also makes the birds hungry and willing to experiment.”

“Despite the snow storm, it was such a lovely day today. After a week of not feeding them, they still came back”

“Fall is definitely her season.”

“It looks really cool how the adult feathers are coming in on the Grackles.”

“I’ve been that excited about food before too.”

“More from the vault, and these get me into the mood for spring”

“It wasn’t just the weather that made everybody more at ease. It was also that there were hardly any Starling there today. This was one of the only pictures with a Starling I got. It is rather impressive and intimidating, but their presence today was thankfully not.”

“This morning was rather cold, and I noticed several Starlings in the yard. The winter crew is slowly settling in.”

“Be nice to each other and feed the birds!”

“I woke up to an empty nestbox this morning (Thursday), and can hear the babies softly calling in the trees. They must have fledged very early today. Cannot wait to see them in the yard soon :) The Bluebirds have not fledged today, so Syrup has to wait a bit longer to meet her siblings. I have a feeling it is going to happen tomorrow. Which would be good because we are expecting a heatwave.”

“The BBs behaved like the yard is theirs. I don’t blame them and am delighted”
